In brief: Many factors

Most patients at least maintain their pre-replacement range of motion and sometimes gain additional motion after ankle replacement.

In brief: Better

The motion is somewhere between where your bad ankle is and where your good ankle is.

In brief: Less than normal

After and ankle replacement, you will have less than normal motion.
However, it is significantly better than having a fusion.
