Maryville woman has total ankle replacement surgery

Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Tracy Pesut and her patient Cindy are interviewed for a segment on total ankle replacements. Cindy previously had an ankle fusion on her right ankle and preferred the INBONE™ Total Ankle System that Dr. Pesut implanted on her left ankle because the INBONE™ procedure is performed without fusing the bones or implanting metal screws. Cindy is now able to move around without the help of equipment like a motorized scooter, wheelchair or crutches, which she relied on prior to surgery.

The opinions of Dr. Pesut are hers alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Wright Medical Technology, Inc.
