Ankle cartilage damage – our treatment
Ankle cartilage damage happens quickly during sports or in everyday life. Expert 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. In many cases, injections and a resting phase are often sufficient to allow your ankle to heal. In the case of severe ankle cartilage damage or permanent pain, surgery is often necessary. Our doctors in Neustadt 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. Ankle surgery is always aimed at alleviating your symptoms and making you fit again for everyday life.
