Ankle arthroscopy is a surgical technique that allows us to visualize the joint structures of the ankle with relative ease. Ankle injury is very common in sports traumatology and cartilage and the underlying bone is often impacted and can cause osteochondrale injuries. Ankle arthroscopy allows you to avoid some complex and invasive surgeries.
Typically sports injuries appear after repetitive impacts during sprints or shooting that cause pain, inability to climb ramps, stairs or simply walk through uneven terrain.
When suffering ankle fractures, it is often necessary to use plates and screws to rebuild the joint. In the long term this can cause reduced mobility and progressive pain, in these cases, ankle arthroscopy can play an essential role in debridement and arthrolysis, regaining mobility.
Ankle arthroscopy allows for a short hospital stay, low levels of pain and early return to activities.
