Ankle Ligament Repair and Reconstruction

About Ankle Ligament Repair

Ankle ligament repair is a treatment for a complete tear of an ankle ligament that results in instability in the ankle. People with a torn ankle ligament may be unable to do normal activities that involve twisting or turning at the ankle. If medical treatments are not satisfactory, ligament repair surgery may be an effective treatment. The surgery to correct a torn ankle ligament involves either repairing the ligament directly or replacing the ligament with a piece of healthy tendon. The tendon graft may come from the person or from an organ donor.
