Salem, Oregon patient Mary Davis shares her personal story of living with severe ankle pain beginning when she was a high school basketball player. After undergoing surgery for torn ligaments at 17, her ankle continued to deteriorate and limited her ability to participate in a wide range of sports that she enjoyed. Now 67, Davis enjoys normal range of motion and is actively keeping up with her grandchildren.

The opinions of Mary Davis are hers alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Wright Medical.

Any results are specific to this particular individual only. Individual results and activity levels after surgery vary and depend on many factors including age, weight and prior activity level.
