Dr. Steven Steinlauf of Orthopaedic Associates of South Broward County strongly recommends ankle replacement as an option for patients with age and injury-related ankle issues. Vast improvements in implant technology have led to better ankle functionality. Dr. Steinlauf points out that many people know about knee or hip replacement but they should also know about the option of total ankle replacement.
Patient Bella Berler is now pain free after her March 2016 surgery, when she received a total ankle replacement with the INFINITY™ Total Ankle System implanted into her right ankle. “I feel good, I feel 98-99%.”
The opinions of Bella Berler and Dr. Steven Steinlauf are theirs alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Wright Medical.
