    Ankle Arthroscopy - Podiatrist in Southfield, Livonia and Novi MI - Neal Mozen, DPM http://www.michiganpodiatry.com Phone: (248) 258-0001 Podiatrist Dr. Neal Mozen of the Foot HealthCare Associates discusses Ankle Arthroscopy. ANKLE FRACTURES ANKLE SPRAIN More than 25,000 people sprain their ankles every day, according to the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. Ankle sprains are caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. If not properly treated, ankle sprains could develop into long-term problems. More serious ankle sprains, particularly in competitive athletes, may require surgery to repair to tighten the ligaments. BROKEN ANKLE During the past 30 years, doctors have noted an increase in the number and severity of broken ankles, due in part to an active, older population of “baby boomers,” according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The ankle has two joints, one on top of the other. A broken ankle can involve one or more bones, as well as injuring the surrounding connecting tissues or ligaments. Any one of the three bones that make up the ankle joint could break as the result of a fall, an automobile accident or some other trauma to the ankle. A broken ankle may also cause damage to the ligaments. Because a severe sprain can often mask the symptoms of a broken ankle, every injury to the ankle should be examined. Symptoms of a broken ankle include: • Bruising • Deformity, particularly if there is a dislocation as well as a fracture • Immediate and severe pain • Inability to put any weight on the injured foot • Swelling • Tender to the touch Treatment options include a leg cast or brace if the fracture is stable. If the ligaments are also torn, or if the fracture created a loose fragment of bone that could irritate the joint, surgery may be required to “fix” the bones together so they will heal properly. FRACTURES Nearly one-fourth of all the bones in your body are in your feet. A broken (fractured) bone in your forefoot or in one of your toes is often painful but rarely disabling. Most of the time, these injuries heal without operative treatment. Types of fractures include stress fractures and general bone fractures. Stress fractures frequently occur in the bones of the forefoot extending from your toes to the middle of your foot. Stress fractures are like tiny cracks in the bone surface. They can occur with sudden increases in training (such as running or walking for longer distances or times), improper training techniques or changes in training surfaces. Most other types of fractures extend through the bone. They may be stable, in which there is no shift in bone alignment, or displaced, in which the bone ends no longer line up properly. These fractures usually result from trauma, such as dropping a heavy object on your foot, or from a twisting injury. If the fractured bone does not break through the skin, it is called a closed fracture. Several types of fractures occur to the forefoot bone on the side of the little toe (fifth metatarsal). An ankle-twisting injury may tear the tendon that attaches to this bone and pull a small piece of the bone away. A more serious injury in the same area is a Jones fracture, which occurs near the base of the bone and disrupting the blood supply to the bone. This injury may take longer to heal or require surgery. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and sometimes bruising. Schedule an appointment - Phone: (248) 258-0001 Visit our website: http://www.michiganpodiatry.com

    • Bounce Back Quicker with Ankle Arthroscopy

      A new twist on ankle surgery is helping people with damaged tissue or a severe sprain get back on their feet in record time. “The historic procedures involved an open incision with a lot of suturing. There’s a newer procedure to do it minimally invasive. And we combine it with a ankle arthroscopy which means a little camera into the ankle with instrumentation to be able to repair the ligament through two small punched incisions,” says Dr. Andrew Belis, who is a foot and ankle surgeon on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. These same techniques have been perfected over the years in hips and knees. The ankle presented a unique perspective. “It’s a very tiny joint. So it makes it more challenging, recently there’s more and more equipment that’s out there to help,” says Dr. Belis. The smaller procedure means less damage to the body. Operating through small punctures results in less blood loss and quicker healing. Studies find it delivers the same outcomes as a traditional open surgery. “And each patient we’re finding we’re able to push the envelope and get them back to activity a little bit quicker. So it makes it a very exciting time to have this new procedure at our fingertips to be able to help these patients with chronic ankle weakness or chronic ankle instability,” says Dr. Belis. Many times people with damaged ligaments or a badly sprained ankle will try to side-step surgery. But the resulting instability can make it worse. The arthroscopic approach can be done on recent or old injuries. Still providing a quick bounce back.

          The technique of inserting a tiny camera into the body along with surgical tools has for a number of years helped doctors get into tight spaces. Called arthroscopic procedures, they are common today in knee and shoulder repairs. Now surgeons are lowering their sights - to the ankle. “Studies prove that it’s the same exact outcomes as the older ways of doing it, except your not making a big open incision,” says Dr. Andrew Belis, foot and ankle surgeon on Lee Memorial Health System’s medical staff. Historically, fixing a damaged ankle required an operation to open the area with a large incision to give surgeons access. In turn it required suturing to close the site, followed by downtime for healing. The arthroscopic approach is much less invasive. “You’re using a lot small instrumentation. Which means a little camera into the ankle to be able to repair the ligament through two small punched incisions,” says Dr. Belis. This surgery isn’t for everyone or every injury. Ankle arthroscopy can be used to mend torn ligaments from a bad sprain, repair cartilage damage and remove bone spurs - helping people who were living with pain because they wanted to avoid a major operation. “Each patient, we’re finding we’re able to push the envelope and get them back to activity a little bit quicker. So it makes it a very exciting time to have this new procedure at our fingertips to be able to help these patients with chronic ankle weakness or chronic ankle instability,” says Dr. Belis. It’s a new twist on surgery that is getting people back on their feet and moving.
