Closer look at John's ankle injuries
Performing the surgery
Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive joint surgery that is designed to treat ankle pain and improve overall joint function. It is performed through small key-hole incisions with a special miniature camera (an arthroscope) that visualises cartilages, ligaments, and bones, inside the joint.
During John’s surgery joint synovectomy and debridement was done and after confirming joint instability, a small incision was made to refrain the lateral ligaments of the ankle, with additional ligament reinforcement with implant.
