New ankle system helps Osakis woman get back in gear

Osakis, Minn. resident Lindsay Niehoff and Dr. Russell Sticha at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists were interviewed for an article on total ankle replacements that appeared in The Osakis Review. Lindsay dealt with ankle pain for five years after she broke and dislocated her left ankle in December 2004. The initial surgery to place pins and a plate in her joint left Lindsay with pain when walking and limited her range of motion. In 2009 Lindsay received the INBONE® Total Ankle System in her left ankle. Today she has regained much of her mobility and is able to enjoy golf without pain.
