Ankle Replacement - What it is

Osteoarthritis of the ankle 

These cartilages begin to breakdown or damaged, due to normal wear and tear due to ageing or from an injury such as ankle fracture or dislocation. Eventually the underlying bones begin to rub together, causing excruciating pain and difficulty when walking. This condition is known as osteoarthritis. While it is not common, this condition can affect the ankle joint.
