In this outpatient procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions to insert the camera and surgical instruments to see the problem with the ankle joint and then treat it. Common procedures done with an ankle arthroscopy are removal of loose bodies, debridement of excess damaged tissue, fracture repair, and removal of bone spurs. Instructions from the doctor and physical therapist should be followed to ensure a quicker and safe recovery.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that can have you back to your favorite activities soon. If you have an ankle injury and you think this option might be right for you, contact any of our offices throughout North Carolina to learn more about this service and how Triangle Orthopaedics can provide care for you.
