Ankle cartilage damage – Our treatment
Ankle cartilage damage can happen quickly: One wrong step and you twist your ankle. Competent treatment also makes sense for minor injuries as an untreated cartilage injury can lead to pain in the medium term, which then makes ankle surgery necessary. Our foot specialists in Hamburg use various diagnostic methods such as MRI to determine whether you have cartilage damage in the ankle and then decide which treatment is necessary. A resting phase is often sufficient to allow your ankle to heal. In the case of severe ankle cartilage damage or permanent pain, surgery is necessary. Our consultants in Hamburg have a high level of expertise in surgical interventions on the ankle to heal cartilage damage. These range from gentle minimally invasive surgical techniques to a stiffening (arthrodesis) of your ankle. The aim of your ankle surgery is always to alleviate your discomfort.
