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.
