In brief: Fusing stuff!

This procedure(or technically called triple arthrodesis) involves exactly what you posted; an operation that involves fusing the bones together to provide stability and repair to the damaged joint(foot).

In brief: Talus Fusion

In talus fusion surgery, your surgeon removes the cartilage between your tibia and talus.
She replaces it with a bone graft, then connects the tibia, graft and talus with metal screws or rods. The bones will grow and fuse together. Read more: what is talus fusion surgery? | ehow.Com http://www.Ehow.Com/facts_6328108_talus-fusion-surgery_.Html#ixzz2fzkkdeaw.
