Explore all your options

People who have suffered ankle injuries may feel they have limited repair options, often being recommended drastic solutions such as fusing bones together or implanting plates, screws, etc into the ankle joint. These surgeries often come with limitations and significant loss of mobility. Although an ankle fusion/replacement may be the answer, The Stone Clinic believes that there are other much less invasive options that patients should consider prior to undergoing surgery.
