Ankle Replacement rehab

Our ankle replacements continue to perform well. This particular patient is only 8 weeks post-op and is walking with no pain. The usual rehab for an ankle replacement involves 6 weeks in a moon boot. The first 2 weeks you remain non-weight bearing after which you can start partial weight bearing for the remaining 4 weeks. In this patient’s case he required further alignment surgery to his hindfoot which kept him non-weight bearing for 6 weeks. Come talk to us if your ankle arthritis is starting to bother you.
