You do not have to be an athlete to use your ankle every day. Your ankle joint holds critical responsibility for basic foot and leg movements. However, it is a bone and soft tissue joint that is susceptible to injury. Whether you have severely sprained your ankle during a traumatic fall or you have a minor stress fracture from overuse, we can help you at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our sports medicine specialists are equipped to treat simple and complex ankle injuries, including ankle fractures and dislocations.

It is not uncommon for a dislocation of the ankle to also include fractures or surrounding tissue damage, such as in the case of a severe Grade III ankle sprain. Fractures can be the result of a fall or sports injury. The elderly and athletes are more prone to ankle fractures due to weak bones and overuse injuries.

During an injury of high force, the ankle joint can become dislocated. This happens when the connective tissue and supporting muscles that hold the ankle bones in place are torn. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer a wide variety of treatment options to repair both ankle dislocations and ankle fractures, whether they occur together or separately.

Dislocation and Fracture Repair

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we value the importance of restoring your ankle in its entirety, which may include specialized surgical treatments for the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone that make up your joint. You can trust that we will conduct a thorough examination of your symptoms and evaluate your ankle damage in detail before recommending the most appropriate course of treatment. Our practice offers both surgical and non-surgical therapies depending on the severity of your injury.

In the case of a dislocated ankle with associated fractures, your treatment may involve the anatomical reduction of any displaced fractures, surgical internal or external fixation to stabilize the ankle or fracture and the subsequent use of a protective boot or cast for several weeks. We are experienced orthopedic surgeons who will determine the most suitable treatment for your ankle injury so that you can return to activities and sports as quickly as possible.

If you have suffered an ankle injury, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today. We are a leading source for advanced ankle treatments, from dislocations and sprains to complex fractures and more. Our facility houses state-of-the-art equipment and a team of top-ranked physicians who proudly offer the latest treatments that sports medicine has to offer.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
