No bones about it – ankle replacements on the rise
September 02, 2010
Summary: This article in the Tampa Tribune details the story of local resident Jim Triplett, whose left ankle healed improperly after a car accident three decades ago. As the years went by, his ankle deteriorated, forcing him to give up some of his favorite activities, such as golfing and bowling. Jim was implanted with the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement earlier this year and was back at work within 10 days and back on the driving range a few months later. In the article, his surgeon, Dr. Nathan Penney at Total Foot and Ankle of Tampa Bay, talks about why he uses INBONE™ for total ankle replacements.
