Ankle replacement surgery

Total ankle arthroplasty or total ankle replacement

A total ankle replacement involves replacing bones or joints damaged by disease or injury with artificial ones

Payment options avaliable: This treatment offers fixed price packages

About

Ankle arthritis is an uncommon condition, but because it can happen after ankle fractures and severe ankle sprains, it can affect young working adults. Your consultant may recommend ankle replacement surgery if you have advanced arthritis or if your painful symptoms haven't responded to other treatments.

An ankle replacement involves replacing the worn-out parts of your ankle with artificial ones.

Ankle replacement surgery Fixed Price Packages

At HCA UK we recognise the importance of giving our patients peace of mind. That's why our guaranteed fixed prices are fully inclusive, with no hidden extras.

Need to know

  • What happens icon plus

    An ankle replacement can be carried out under a general anaesthetic (where you will be asleep) or a regional anaesthetic such as an epidural. Our world-leading surgeons use the latest cutting-edge techniques.

    Your surgeon will make a cut on your ankle and remove the damaged bone and tissue allowing the joint surfaces to be lined with artificial metal and plastic joints to provide pain-free motion. Your surgeon will then stitch the cut on your ankle.

    The operation usually takes about two hours.
  • How to prepare icon plus

    Like all procedures, there can be risks and side effects, but your consultant will explain these to you in your consultation and answer any questions you may have. If you're having a general anaesthestic, your consultant will tell you how long you should avoid eating or drinking beforehand. You will need to arrange for someone to help you get home from the hospital after your procedure.
  • Afterwards icon plus

    You will be cared for in hospital for up to three nights following your operation. You will have to use crutches until you can bear weight on your ankle. You'll need to have physiotherapy to help with strength, range of motion and mobility in your ankle. It may take up to six weeks to fully recover. Your consultant will let you know how long it will take to get back to your usual routine, including work.

Don't wait, pay for yourself

We offer this treatment at a fixed price at some of our facilities.
