Total Ankle Replacement

End stage arthrits of the ankle joint can be a debilitating condition. In the past the only really good treatment option was with either bracing or a surgical fusion of the ankle joint as joint replacements were very unreliable. Over the past several years, there have been many advancements made in the area of ankle joint replacement. There are now four FDA approved devices that have contributed to the more recent success of ankle replacement as a good alternative to fusion.

While ankle joint replacement surgery potentially has a higher complication rate compared to fusion, more recent studies have shown that ankle joint replacement patients tend to have higher satisfaction scores when it comes to their overall quality of life after the surgery.

INBONE® Total Ankle Replacement

INBONE® Total Ankle Replacement

Until recently, there were limited options for ankle replacement in the U.S. The INBONE® Total Ankle began as a leading foot and ankle surgeon's quest to provide a viable surgical solution to ankle arthritis patients for pain reduction and restored mobility.

The INBONE® ankle team carefully studied previous ankle designs to determine the causes of implant failure. With that knowledge in hand, and using design elements already proven successful in hip and knee implants, INBONE® ankle engineers designed a total ankle replacement intended to stand the test of time.
