I am thrilled with this new procedure and the possibility it offers many who suffer from ankle joint pain.

For the preceding two years I had struggled with arthritic pain in my right ankle which forced me to give up golf and my job as an outside attendant at the golf course. It progressed to the point where I could no longer walk more than 30 yards without severe sciatic pain in my hip from favoring the ankle. My heel had moved inward and my ankle was turning under with each month that passed. I feared being in a wheelchair at 67.

On August 24, 2010, I was operated on by Dr. Selene Parekh to install an “Inbone Replacement”. I am now entering my 10th week following surgery and will be walking this week in new tennis shoes with no support whatsoever. I still have physical therapy ahead of me for weeks, to increase my range of motion and yes, there is soreness and residual stiffness in my ankle, but the ankle is now straight, and I am walking pain free for the first time in years. I no longer have sciatica pain and I expect to be walking without any discomfort in a month from now.

I am thrilled with this new procedure and the possibility it offers many who suffer from ankle joint pain.
