New Devices Getting Patients Moving Again

Ankle Implants Offer New Solution For Worn-Out Joints 

For millions of Americans with failing knees and hips, joint replacement has become a welcome reality. About a quarter million knee replacements and about the same number of hip replacements are performed in the U.S. each year. But ankles are a different story.

The complexity of the ankle has made it a tough joint to successfully replace and keep in place. Now, doctors are testing a new generation of devices that are helping patients get moving again.
