Ankle Arthroscopy

Arthroscopic ankle surgery is often used to treat various types of pain in the ankle. Arthroscopic surgery is a type of procedure where a small camera is put into your joint. Instruments are inserted into the small incisions to help remove or repair any of the damaged underlying structures. This surgery can be scheduled using I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need ankle arthroscopy?

Even though not every cause of pain in the ankle is able to be treated using arthroscopic ankle surgery, there are a number of reasons why it is done, such as:

  • Damaged cartilage – This is commonly found in individuals who have injured their ankle joint.
  • Bone spur removal – Spurs can commonly form at the front of the ankle joint, thus causing it to become pinched whenever you push your foot toward your shin.
  • Removal of scar tissue or loose debris – If you have a condition where loose debris is accumulating in your ankle joint, this ankle surgery can help.

How is ankle arthroscopy performed?

An ankle surgeon will perform the procedure using a general anesthetic. After a sufficient amount of anesthetic is used, the ankle surgeon will create a portal for them to access your joint. The portals are specifically located to minimize injury to the tendons, blood vessels and nerves. A camera is put into one port while the instruments are put through others to help address the issue. The length of the procedure varies based upon what the doctor hopes to accomplish.

What is recovery like after ankle arthroscopy?

Following the surgery, your ankle is wrapped using a splint or soft bandage. Most of the time, you will work with a physical therapist to help regain your strength and movement in the ankle joint. Rehabilitation is going to vary based upon the different types of ankle surgery.

How much does ankle arthroscopy cost?

Ankle surgeries can cost as much as $39,900 when done in a hospital. In a managed care facility, you might spend as much as $9,975. Booking your surgery with I Need A Surgery can get you the same procedure done for $3,990.
