Total ankle arthroplasty antabuse tablets. It is a surgical procedure that Dr. Nute uses to treat ankle arthritis. Arthritic changes may be a result of normal wear and tear due to aging, or from an injury such as a broken ankle or dislocation. Arthritis eventually leads to loss of cartilage, pain and/or deformity. Conservative management includes anti-inflammatory medication, bracing, physical therapy, activity modification and pain medication. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis are usually good candidates for the ankle joint replacement. Other patients that should be considered are those that need but do not want a fusion-type procedure that would eliminate the motion at the ankle joint. The goal of TAA is to improve ankle motion so the patient has less pain during activity. Come visit us and see if you are a candidate for such a procedure! Call 262-764-5595.
