MyAnkle is a free resource to assist those suffering from ankle problems. The site offers up-to-date and accurate information on the condition and the various available treatments.

MyAnkle is pleased to announce the launch of a comprehensive new blog and website to help those suffering from ankle conditions. The London ankle surgeon provides accurate and up-to-date information about ankle conditions and problems, as well as the various available treatments. The website covers various conditions, including Achilles tendon problems, ankle arthritis, ankle sprains, and osteochondral lesions of the talus. The website also provides details about the most up-to-date trials of the treatments in progress.

MyAnkle content is written by members of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and experts in orthopaedic surgery registered by the General Medical Council. The authors also contribute to the National Joint Registry Guide for Public and Patients. About 1000 surgeries to replace the ankle joint occur in the UK each year. There are only a few surgeons who do ankle replacements. The average number performed annually ranges from four to more than twenty.

Ankle replacement surgery is a common procedure where an artificial metal alloy replaces the damaged joint with a plastic surface. This type of artificial joint should last for at least a decade. The surgery is a major surgical process that may require a year to fully recover. The procedure is free of cost under the NIH but requires an NHS GP referral. The waiting time varies. The replacement generally is only approved if other treatments have not been satisfactory. Some of the other treatments include steroid injections, physiotherapy, and an ankle brace.

The website presents information about other types of conditions. These include high ankle sprain, Plantar Fasciitis, clicking joints, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, and Hallus Rigidus. Choosing a foot and ankle surgeon is another helpful resource available on the web pages. Suggested questions to ask the surgeon are listed.
