We can now revise total ankle replacements!

Like all joint replacements, over time, ankle replacements can fail as well. Recent versions of total ankle replacements did have higher failure rates due to the plastic or bearing surfaces as well as the design of the implants.
These days with patient specific technology that creates a 3D template of your ankle and a cutting block 3D printed specifically matched to your requirements, our longevity has been significantly increased.
Either way, if your total ankle replacement is starting to give you pain, then it may have started to wear, but fortunately, revision options for ankle replacements are still available with good outcomes.
