Total Ankle Joint Replacement
End stage arthritis of the ankle joint can be a debilitating condition. In the past the only really good treatment option was with either bracing or a surgical fusion of the ankle joint as joint replacements were very unreliable. Over the past several years, there have been many advancements made in the area of ankle joint replacement.
INBONE® Total Ankle Replacement
Until recently, there were limited options for ankle replacement in the U.S. The INBONE® Total Ankle began as a leading foot and ankle surgeon's quest to provide a viable surgical solution to ankle arthritis patients for pain reduction and restored mobility. The INBONE® ankle team carefully studied previous ankle designs to determine the causes of implant failure.
Salto Talaris® Total Ankle Replacement
The Salto Talaris Anatomic Ankle is a new generation ankle replacement that mimics the anatomy and flexion/extension movement of the natural ankle joint, and is an alternative to traditional ankle fusion.
Advancements in orthopaedic technology continue to revolutionize surgical options. Today’s surgical instruments and implants make orthopaedic surgery more precise and more effective than ever before.
The S.T.A.R.™ Ankle
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved SBi’s Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR™ Ankle) system to treat U.S. patients. It is a safe, proven alternative to failed conservative treatment. It is the only three piece mobile bearing non constrained, uncemented total ankle replacement (to receive pre-market approval to replace a painful arthritic ankle joint due to post traumatic arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis).
