Early Mobilisation reduces the risk of complications in Ankle Fracture Fixation Surgery

Ankle fractures can occur during sporting activities, or as a result of a fall. Fractures can occur in the tibia, fibula or a combination of both, and damage can also involve the ligaments of the ankle joint. Depending on the type and location of the fracture, surgery may be required.

 Dr Kaushik Hazratwala - Ankle surgery specialist

Depending on the success and stability of the fixation, early mobilisation of the ankle joint can occur. Previously ankle fractures would be placed in a cast for 6 – 12 weeks and would cause long term stiffness, swelling, weakness and stability issues. If you have suffered an ankle fracture and would like to talk to a specialist, contact Dr Kaushik Hazratwala for expert advice. He has done many successful ankle replacement surgery and one of the finest orthopaedic surgeon in Townsville.
