Dr. Lance Silverman and his patient Charles Soto – who was implanted with the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement – were featured in a story on the rising number of total ankle replacements performed in the United States. The story includes animation depicting how the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement procedure is done and includes commentary from Dr. Silverman, who explains that surgeons attempt to recreate the new joint as close to the original anatomy as is possible. Charles discusses how he has excellent mobility since receiving his new ankle and is now pain-free.
