Treatment for bone spurs in the ankle

I dislocated my ankle in 1997; as a result I now have osteoarthritis. I have been able to manage the pain until recently. I saw my PCP to get a referal to an Orthopedic last week and he informed me that I have 2 bone spurs located on the front of my ankle joint (which is where I am experiencing the worst pain). I have an appointment with the Orthopedic 10/13. What treatment options are available for this? I have limited mobility, so I am not ready to fuse the joint or replace it.
