Ankle Replacement Surgery
Ankle replacement surgery is an option when the ankle joint has suffered significant wear and tear resulting from a degenerative condition or injury. A joint injury can lead to osteoarthritis, which is one of the primary reasons that a patient may require partial or total replacement of the joint.
If you are suffering from pain, instability or stiffness in the ankle joint, Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can offer a comprehensive examination to determine if replacement of the joint is necessary. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will initially explore a more conservative approach involving joint preservation treatment options.
If joint preservation treatments do not produce desired results, replacing the ankle joint may be the most appropriate option. Reducing pain in the ankle, as well as restoring stability and function, is the primary goal of joint replacement at Silicon Valley Orthopedics. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds are accomplished orthopedic surgeons offering individualized joint replacement solutions in California.

If you are experiencing pain in the ankles, even when at rest, it could indicate significant deterioration in the joint or supporting structures. Seeking treatment, whether through joint preservation or joint replacement, will improve your quality of life.
