Re: Ankle replacement vs debridement, spur removal & peroneal tendon surgery
I would go with the least invasive first. There is no turning back after an ankle replacement. I just found out my STAR failed on Tuesday. The options are not that great once you have a failed replacement.
You can always do the replacement if the other doesn't work.
Brostrom x2, peroneal tendon repair x2, Peroneal subluxation, PTT tendon repair, microfracture x5, OATS, Distraction arthroplasty, ORIF talus & fibula, subtalar fusion, ankle replacement (failed)
