Summary: In this Panama City News Herald story, Writer Chris Segal reports on the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement by Wright Medical. Dr. Shayne Jensen of Gulf Coast Podiatry Foot and Ankle Surgery Center in Panama City, Fla. explains how the INBONE™ Total Ankle Replacement uses an artificial prosthesis to offer patients suffering from ankle pain better mobility without the restricted movement that results from an ankle fusion procedure, another treatment option for ankle issues. Dr. Jensen’s patient Mike Mead says that he has been impressed with his progress since his total ankle replacement in July, noting that he has been able to resume his daily, mile-long walks, which at one point became impossible due to his ankle pain.
