Ankle ligament repair
Ankle ligament injuries are common and mostly they heal by themselves, however, sometimes nature needs a helping hand, particularly for more severe injuries where surgery is required to reattach or reconstruct the ligaments.
An MRI scan is required before surgery, which Mr Parker will arrange for you
Surgery is performed as a day case under general anaesthetic
3 weeks in a plaster followed by 3 weeks in a moon boot is required post surgery
You will be fit to return to work/drive 6-8 weeks post surgery
You will require 5-6 sessions of physiotherapy after having your surgery.
Please always remember to ask Mr Parker at your consultation reference any specific recovery queries relating to your job or lifestyle.
