-- Foot health is very important, especially later in life. If ankle problems arise, talk to a foot specialist as soon as possible. The Center of Podiatric Medicine and Drs. Mark A. Jones, Bryan Hersh, Tara Fox and George V. Tsoutsouris, foot doctors in Chicago, help patients put their best foot forward by offering ankle arthroscopy.
"Timely treatment is the key to quicker rehabilitation. Most importantly, foot treatment prevents further damage to the bones and joints in the foot. From toenail fungus to bone tumors, we have the technology and knowledge to solve minor and advanced foot problems. Arthroscopy of the ankle and subtalar joints is a surgical technique we utilize to treat a ankle joint-it's non-invasive and offers several advantages for patients," asserts Dr. Jones, Chicago foot doctor.
What is arthroscopy? As Dr. Jones noted, it is a alternative surgical technique used to target the ankle and subtalar joints. The process is quite simple; in most cases, ankle arthroscopy can be completed in one visit. At the start of the procedure, Dr. Jones pinpoints the problem area and makes small incisions, and then he slips a small circular camera lens attached to an elongated tube (arthroscope) into the joint-this helps to identify the issue and steps needed for treatment. Internal images of the joint are projected on a monitor, which allows Dr. Jones to utilize equipment with ultimate precision to treat stress or trauma related to the ankle joint.
Since an arthroscopic incision is one-quarter inch or less in length, it lessens the chance of scarring, compared to traditional open ankle procedures. Plus, non-invasive procedures are gaining momentum in the medical field for one particular reason-they decrease the chance of side effects or trauma associated with surgery. State-of-the-art equipment and modern treatment techniques boost the accuracy of solely targeting problems associated with tissue, bones or joints.
An arthroscopy technique can be used for many common ankle problems: acute ankle sprains, repetitive ankle injuries, "athletes ankle", strained back ankle, synovitis and arthrofibrosis, among others. Scheduling an exam with a podiatrist is the best way to figure out if this is the most effective treatment for ankle joint issues.
