Lateral Ankle Ligament Reconstruction
Ligaments help keep your ankle joint stable. When the lateral or outside ankle ligament is damaged, you can have an unstable ankle (“weak ankles”) and sprain your ankle more frequently. This can cause pain as well as more damage to the cartilage of the ankle joint. The foot and ankle specialists at OHSU can use surgical procedures to rebuild the ligaments, restoring ankle joint stability. These procedures can allow you to walk, exercise and participate in sports again without pain or instability.
