Raleigh-Durham’s Choice for Minimally Invasive Ankle Surgery
Arthroscopic ankle surgery is usually a one-day procedure which entails the use of a tiny camera inserted through a small incision into the ankle to survey the source of the injury and to guide the surgeon as he corrects the problem through another small incision or set of incisions elsewhere on the ankle.
Conditions Usually Requiring Arthroscopic Ankle Surgery
This minimally invasive ankle surgery addresses many common diagnoses including:
- Ankle arthritis
- Anterior Ankle Impingement
- Unstable ankle
- Lateral ligament reconstruction
- Ankle pain following fracture
- Loose bodies within the ankle
- Osteochondral defects of the talus

- Usual out-patient procedure vs. overnight or longer stay
- Lower infection rates
- Faster overall recovery
- Minimal scarring
