Sprained Ankle in Santa Rosa CA
What is a Sprained Ankle?
A sprained ankle is a common injury that occurs when the ankle is twisted or turned and results in torn ligaments within the joint. Ankle ligament reconstruction is commonly performed on patients with ankle instability or repeated sprains, as it is effective in tightening loosened ligaments and improving the overall stability of the joint.
If you have experienced repeated ankle sprains and believe you may benefit from ankle ligament reconstruction, contact our office in Santa Rosa CA today to schedule a consultation.
The ankle ligament reconstruction procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the two ligaments may be simply reattached, or part of a lateral tendon around the ankle may be used to repair the torn ligament. Your doctor will decide which technique is best for you and if ankle ligament reconstruction is the ideal sprained ankle treatment for you after a thorough evaluation of your condition.
