Most people in their lifetime will have an ankle sprain. The sprains are divided into three grades. A grade 3 sprain means that the two major ligaments on the outside of the ankle, "Anterior Talo-Fibular Ligament" and the "Calcaneo-Fibular Ligament" (ATFL and CFL), may be ruptured. It is important to know that just because you have ruptured your ligaments, you don't need surgery.
You need to appropriately rehab your ankle and if after 4-5 months of appropriate rehab you have symptomatic instability (keeps rolling over on uneven ground), you may need Ankle Reconstruction.
Dr Hazratwala, has devised his own surgical technique of Augmenting the traditional Broström Gould Reconstruction with a Gracilis graft. The incorporation of the graft eliminates the use of cast immobilisation for 6 weeks but rather allows the patient to full weight bear and commence physiotherapy immediately
Below is a video of Dr Hazratwala Performing the procedure and a poster of his results.
