When is an ankle reconstruction performed? What is involved in surgery? What is the main aim? Why is it performed? Method & recovery?

Let me explain. The surgery is performed when you can not treat the patient with consevative methods. It can involve repairing or transferring tendons, implanting joints, removing tumors, and cutting, grafting, or fusing bone. The aim surgery seeks to relieve the pain and discomfort and restore the ankl as much as possible. Many methods are use and recovery time varies from procedure to procedure.
