Tucson, Arizona resident Michael Hill and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Landis at Tucson Orthopedic Institute were interviewed for an article on the INBONE™ Total Ankle replacement that appeared in the Sierra Vista Herald newspaper. In 2009, Hill fell off a six-foot ladder fracturing the lower portion of his right leg; the injury required major surgery. Six months later, Hill began to experience pain in his right ankle, an MRI revealed that the prior injury caused damage to his ankle joint and the cartilage was wearing out. After learning about the benefits of the INBONE™ Total Ankle replacement procedure, Hill elected to go back under the knife. Just 4 months after his surgery, Hill regained the mobility in his ankle and was back to work, pain free.
