Ankle Fusion

The ankle is made up of 3 bones covered by slippery cartilage tissue that aids in frictionless movement as the bones move. Wear-and-tear, inflammation or injury can damage the cartilage, leading to a painful condition called arthritis. Ankle fusion is a surgical treatment for arthritis, where the ankle bones are fused to eliminate movement and reduce pain.
