Some Conditions

The peroneal tendons can be a cause for pain on the outer side of the ankle. These tendons can develop tears, tendinitis or instability that results in a dislocation or clicking of the ankle on activity. Treatment would involve an ankle support and physiotherapy in mild cases. For persistent symptoms, a repair of the tear or reconstruction of the instability can be useful. In some cases of tendinitis or tears, minimally invasive tendoscopic therapy can also be used.

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured or torn ligaments in the knee.

This is a well-established procedure today and can be done reliably and with good results and satisfaction.

Ankle arthritis may have many underlying causes. This can occur due to a prior fracture, inflammatory arthritis, repeated ankle sprains and instability, gout, foot deformities etc. Early ankle arthritis associated with bone spurs and pain can also be managed with an ankle arthroscopy and resection of the spurs and treatment of cartilage defects to restore function and relieve pain in the ankle. In the intermediate stages of arthritis, osteotomy or correction of deformity to relive pressure on the ankle cartilage can also be a good option.
