Henderson, Nev. resident Tom Thomason and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Troy Watson at Desert Orthopaedic Clinic were interviewed for an article on total ankle replacements that appeared in The Henderson Press. Tom injured his ankle as a young athlete while serving in the U.S. Army Special Forces and eventually developed severe arthritis. He endured years of constant pain and difficulty walking before he finally consulted his physician. Tom declined an ankle fusion procedure that would have limited his mobility and chose the INBONE® Total Ankle System to replace his right ankle. Today Tom is walking without pain, able to play with his grandchildren and go on walks with his family.
