WHAT IS TOTAL ANKLE REPLACEMENT

Total ankle replacement, also known as ankle arthroplasty, is the procedure to replace a damaged or diseased ankle joint with a new, artificial joint. These artificial joints may be made from metal or plastic. Total ankle replacement in Singapore is typically recommended for patients who are diagnosed with advanced ankle arthritis, which causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the ankle joint, as well as difficulty walking or moving the foot.

Total Ankle Replacement in Singapore

Other reasons why an individual may be recommended a total ankle replacement in Singapore include:

  • Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis that affects the ankle joint
  • Ankle pain that persists while resting
  • Ankle pain that worsens when weight or pressure is applied to the joint
  • Ankle instability or weakness
  • Limited mobility
  • Difficulty or painful walking
  • Fractures

A total ankle replacement can help address these issues long-term. Generally, the procedure is recommended to older adults; and for patients whose symptoms cannot be controlled through conservative means such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroid injections, physiotherapy and braces.

Total ankle replacement in Singapore may not be suitable for individuals who are obese or overweight, or have weak ankle ligaments, misaligned feet, diabetes, nerve damage, bone infections and circulatory problems.
