“There has been a major shift in how we approach ankle arthritis… ankle replacement has experienced a resurgence in the last 5-10 years with significant improvement in technique and implants.”


Steven Steinlauf, MD
WPLG-TV (ABC, Miami)

“When you look at the data, ankle replacements are lasting longer. They’re not perfect like a hip. They have their downside, but if you can give a person better function, and when you compare ankle fusion to ankle replacement head-to-head, that’s the difference.

[In terms of] pain relief, they’re the same but functionally walking, which people do every day, may be a little easier with ankle replacement, so that’s why you can see that we are having more success, (and) that’s why we’ve advanced them.”


Corey Rosenbaum, MD
The Daytona Beach News-Journal

“Most patients have been dealing with chronic pain for a long time. They had some injury at some point in their life that started the process of significantly wearing out a joint. Their arthritis is at an advanced stage that has not gotten any better with conservative treatment. When all else fails, that’s when we start talking about surgery. It’s a last resort, but if needed, it’s a good surgery to do. [With ankle replacement vs. ankle fusion] our main goal is to reduce the pain, improve mobility, and improve their stability in the ankle joint.”

“It [ankle] hurts and it swells, and it has a profound impact on quality of life.”

“The ankle is a rigid, sound and mobile structure. That’s why when it is injured it can be devastating.”


Gregory C. Berlet, MD
Columbus Dispatch

“We’re going to do our thinking in our office without the pressures of the OR, without a patient on the table. We’re going to use that dress rehearsal to actually draw a guide for surgery … Why would you ever just have good enough when … you could put it in the right spot every time? I can be incredibly picky about where I want (the implant) to go because I have all the time in the world to set it up.”


Jay Mabrey, MD
Columbus Dispatch

“I think the navigation part started with the knee and then it moved to the hip. As far as the ankle goes, I would see that just as a logical extension of the technology. And, there’s the advantage to the surgeon that he or she can go in and anticipate problems beforehand.”
