Total Ankle Replacement

An injured ankle joint can make everyday activities painful and difficult to do. When surgery is the best option to reduce the pain, you want specially trained surgeons who can provide the latest technology.

Ankle joint replacement is done when the joint is severely damaged from conditions such as:

  • Traumatic injury
  • Chronic ankle sprains
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout
  • Primary osteoarthritis

Total ankle replacement mimics the actual ankle. It's an alternative to fusing the ankle. The first and only pre-operative navigation system for total ankle replacements is now offered at Gundersen Health System. It's called the Prophecy® INBONE® Total Ankle System.

Whenever possible, your provider will take you through certain steps of treatment to try and avoid surgery. Some treatments may include:

  • Medications
  • Braces
  • Injections
  • Shoe modifications

If surgery is the best option for you, your provider will discuss fusion and total ankle replacement to decide which procedure best fits your lifestyle. If total ankle replacement is the best option for you, Gundersen has providers trained on all FDA-cleared total ankle replacements in common use to find the best match for you.
