The Procedure of Joint Fusion Surgery
In this procedure, by giving a local anesthesia your surgeon will make a small incision on your skin and take out all the damaged tissues from your joint. A small piece of bone or a special man-made substance is kept between the two ends of the joints. The remaining joints will then be fused with the help of pins, plates, screws or rods. This hardware is permanently placed in the treated area.
The triple arthrodesis surgery is also performed in such a way by welding the three main joints of the hind foot. And it is especially to treat the rear part of the foot to correct its deformity and sometimes to improve the stability of the foot.
Triple arthrodesis surgery is also a very supportive procedure to fuse the bones of your ankle. The ankle bones are fused into one single piece and the patient gets relief from the pain of arthritis in the ankle. The fusion of ankle joint surgery is done when Rheumatoid arthritis or any injury is there in the ankle and thus repairs it to release the pain.
