Stress Fractures of the Tibia
Ankle Arthroscopic Chondroplasty
An abrasion chondroplasty is performed when the articular cartilage wears away, exposing the underlying bone. In this procedure, a rotary burr is used to scrape off the bone tissue from the surface of the joint. This scraping action creates a bleeding surface and later forms scar tissue that replaces the original articular cartilage.
Ankle Ligament Repair
A sprain is the stretching or tearing of a ligament. Ligaments connect adjacent bones in a joint and provide stability to the joint.
An ankle sprain is a common injury and occurs when you fall or suddenly twist the ankle joint or when you land your foot in an awkward position after a jump. It most commonly occurs when you participate in sports or when you jump or run on a surface that is irregular.
Ankle Fracture Fixation
The ankle joint is composed of three bones: the tibia, fibula and talus, which are articulated together. The ends of the fibula and tibia (lower leg bones) form the inner and outer malleolus, which are the bony protrusions of the ankle joint that you can feel and see on either side of the ankle. The joint is protected by a fibrous membrane called a joint capsule, and filled with synovial fluid to enable smooth movement.
Articular cartilage is the white tissue lining the ends of bones that form joints. It cushions the joint and helps in smooth gliding of bones during movement. The cartilage can get damaged with wear and tear with increasing age, injury or trauma. This leads to painful rubbing of the joint bones and inflammation.
Foot Fracture ORIF
The ankle joint is composed of three bones: the tibia, fibula and talus, which are articulated together. The ends of the fibula and tibia (lower leg bones) form the inner and outer malleolus, which are the bony protrusions of the ankle joint that you can feel and see on either side of the ankle.
Cheilectomy of the Great (big) Toe
Cheilectomy is a procedure to remove excessive bone from the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ). The MPT joints are the junctions between the metatarsal bones (long bones in the foot) and the proximal bones (bone in toes). The first MTPJ refers to the joint in the big toe of the foot. This surgery is intended to treat pain and stiffness and to increase the motion in the joint of the big toe.
