Ankle Fusion

Ankle fusion is a surgical procedure done for patients with painful end-stage Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is also known as as ankle arthrodesis. The procedure removes the surfaces of the ankle joint to promote a fusion between the tibia (shinbone) and talus (bone in between tibia and fibula). Fusion refers to bones growing together. The surgery may be performed open or by the arthroscopic method.
