Editor Dr. Robin Wulffson published a feature on the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement that includes commentary from Dr. Justin Franson of University Foot & Ankle Institute in Valencia, Calif. Dr. Wulffson touches on the advantages of ankle replacements versus ankle fusion, which limits a patient’s mobility and flexibility. Dr. Franson’s patient Marylynn shared her story of how she endured years of debilitating pain until she could barely walk. In September 2013, Marylynn received her new ankle and today, is enjoying her favorite activities without pain.
