Is Surgery Required for Ankle Pain?

Surgery is usually not required to resolve ankle pain, but it will depend on the type and severity of the condition or injury causing the discomfort. Common ankle problems include everything from arthritis and gout to tendonitis and tarsal tunnel syndrome to sprains and fractures. A correct diagnosis must be established before surgery can be put on, or taken off, the table.

The good news is that most of these conditions often respond well to conservative treatments. Even broken ankles may not require surgery if the joint is stable and the bone is not too far out of place. However, the ultimate determination of whether or not ankle surgery is recommended or required will depend on your doctor’s evaluation and your own needs.
