Our Ankle Care

Orthopaedic Associates specializes in caring for the ligaments, tendons, and bone of the ankle. The ankle joint allows up-and-down movement of the foot. The subtalar joint sits below the ankle joint, and allows side-to-side motion of the foot. Numerous ligaments surround the ankle and subtalar joints, binding the bones of the leg to each other and to those of the foot.

Ligament Surgery

Lateral ankle ligament reconstruction (LALR) is a surgery to firm up or tighten one or more ligaments of the ankle on the outer side of the ankle. It is also referred to as the Brostrom procedure. Usually, it is performed on an outpatient basis, and you can go home as soon as surgery is complete.
