Within the last 1.5 yrs I severely sprained my ankle that previously had an Evans Repair. It is extremely unstable again. What are my options?

Within the last 1.5 yrs I severely sprained my ankle that previously had an Evans Repair. It is extremely unstable again. What are my options?

Ankle instability: Lots of options for ankle instability. There are more aggressive ankle stabilization surgeries if you choose to redo it.

With severe instability a fusion is a last resort as well. Good luck. ...Read more
