Understanding Ankle Replacement Surgery

Total ankle replacement is often recommended for patients with severe ankle arthritis that significantly affects their quality of life and has not responded well to conservative treatments. During the surgery, the worn-out or damaged areas of the ankle joint are removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Patients must be aware that while the procedure can drastically improve quality of life, it comes with potential risks, including infection, blood clots, and the potential need for future revision surgery.

Preparing for Ankle Replacement Surgery

Preparation for an ankle replacement procedure involves a thorough health assessment, including a review of the patient's medical history and various imaging studies. Patients may need to cease certain medications before surgery, and it's essential to arrange for support at home during the initial recovery phase.

Ankle Replacement Surgery

During an ankle replacement surgery, the surgeon removes the damaged joint surfaces and replaces them with artificial components made from metal and plastic. The new joint is designed to simulate the movement of a healthy ankle. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia.

Ankle Replacement Surgery Recovery

Following surgery, a patient's foot and ankle are typically immobilized in a cast or boot to protect the joint and promote healing. Physical therapy is a crucial part of the recovery process to help regain strength and improve mobility. Full recovery can take several months, and patients are typically able to start walking with support within a few weeks of surgery.

The Costs of Ankle Replacement Surgery

The cost of an ankle replacement surgery in Thailand typically ranges from $10,000 to $15,000. Remember, this does not include travel and accommodation expenses. The final cost will also depend on the specific medical facility and the details of the patient's procedure.
