Ankle Joint replacement - artificial ankle

Advancements in orthopedic technology continue to revolutionize surgical options. Todays surgical instruments and implants make orthopedic surgery more precise and more effective than ever before. One such advancement can now be seen in the Salto Talaris tm which has been modeled after the human anatomy and is positioned to redefine the classic approach to ankle arthroplasty.

The innovative Salto Talaris now provideds surgeons the ability to reproduce the natural flexion/extension axis of the ankle with an anatomic design. The Salto Talaris tm implant design and instrumentation is founded on the Salto mobile-bearing ankle prosthesis, which has been in clinical use since 1997 and at 6.4 year mean followup has a 93% survivorship. The Salto Talaris provides accuracy and reproducibility with the precision instrumentation that has evolved to allows a fixed-bearing implant design and represents the philosophy "Less is Sometimes More"

Anatomic design to restore normal anatomy for optimal range of motion.
Highly accurate and reproducible instrumentation.

A total ankle replacement may be needed for those patients with chronic ankle arthritis causing pain that conservative measures such as rest, physical therapy, or medications were unable to correct.

While ankle fractures and ankle sprains may heal, they can lead to problems much later in life. These injuries can cause long-term damage to the cartilage that cushions the ankle joint. Sometimes the cartilage surface is damaged so severely, surgery may be the most effective option to relieve pain.
