Bio ankle patient story

Share this post

 

After being told that he may need to fuse his ankle, or wear an ankle brace, our patient traveled from Arizona to have an arthroscopic regenerative procedure to biologically rebuild his ankle. 2 years later he runs once a week, hikes and with no issues other than some slight stiffness, which he says lasts no more than a day. Find out if we can help you. Set up a complimentary phone consultation.

Data everywhere, and nowhere to hide. In the bad old days, you got injured, and you didn’t tell anyone. You usually recovered. Lived to play another day. Until you couldn’t. Today, you get injured; you could be monitored, measured, uploaded and reported to everyone. You might not be allowed to play. You are “protected”, maybe even blacklisted. Which scenario is better?
It’s possible to repair a chronically unstable ankle but it is best to help people avoid ever getting to that unstable stage by making sure that simple torn ligaments are stimulated to heal properly in the first place.
