Summary: Steve Cassels, 63, has sprained his ankle over 40 times throughout his career as a basketball player and coach. His ankle problems reached critical levels when he had worn away most of his cartilage and was suffering extreme pain if he walked more than 10-15 minutes per day. Steve received the INBONE™ Total Ankle implant from Wright Medical. Steve doesn’t plan to play basketball in the near future, but he is pain-free and leading an active, athletic lifestyle.
