Revision Ankle Surgery / Failed Ankle Surgery Repair

Poor outcome with ankle surgery is usually due to a lack of proper diagnosis and care of the ankle before, during and possibly after surgery. The most common problems seen in failed ankle surgery is lack of proper spur removal, proper correction of ankle ligament looseness, diagnosis and repair of torn tendons and proper treatment of cartilage damage.

In many cases, proper imaging such as MRI, CT and ultrasound studies are necessary to diagnose and work up the problem. With proper diagnosis, treatment of most ankle problems is a simple and often very gratifying procedure.
