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.
The INBONE® Total Ankle has many features that enhance its performance, including:
- Long anchoring stems – The prosthesis has anchoring stems to secure it in place, within both the tibia and talus.
- Physician customized for patient needs – When it comes to joint implants, one size does not fit all. The modular design of the INBONE® ankle allows the physician to select the appropriate components based on patient size and bone structure.
