Grayslake Ill, resident, Dan Chesman, shares his personal story of living with ankle pain and complications for over 40 years, after shattering his right ankle in the 1970s during a sledding accident. He underwent several procedures and treatments throughout the years and while some treatments provided relief, it was only temporary. He found himself having to give up most forms of physical activities and would easily become exhausted. In October 2013, Dan was referred to Dr. Vora at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, who told him about all the latest advancements in ankle replacement technology and that he was a candidate for the INBONE™ Total Ankle System.

Dan received the INBONE™ Total Ankle System in January 2014, and a year and a half later, he is living an active and nearly pain-free life.
