Foot & Ankle Arthritis and Surgical Options

Foot and ankle arthritis explained by Dr. David Ruta

Arthritis is a “wear out” of the slippery joint surfaces of our bones. Most arthritis around the foot and ankle is developed due to a traumatic event. “Post-traumatic arthritis” occurs when you have had a fracture that extends into a joint. Once the fracture has healed, there might still be chronic pain as the surfaces of the joint have been altered. There are many options to help manage an arthritic foot and ankle.
