Picture shows tightening of the ankle capsule and ligament with obliteration of the capsular gap before and after procedure.
Ankle ligament injuries are very common. Most may be treated non operatively. However some will still have persistent symptoms and need surgery.
We are able to perform ankle lateral ligament reconstruction arthroscopically. All the patient has is a few key holes and there is no need to stay overnight in hospital. No casting is needed and patient can start walking on the ankle within a week.
