Re: Osteochondritis dissecans - talus-

Also known as an OCD if you want to look thru the boards.
The success of the surgery depends on the size of the lesion and what surgery is performed and a bit on your age. Do you know how bit the lesion is and what surgery they want to do?

Do a search for OCD on this board and you'll get lots of info. It does depend on size for what they'll do for it.
Brostrom x2, peroneal tendon repair x2, Peroneal subluxation, PTT tendon repair, microfracture x5, OATS, Distraction arthroplasty, ORIF talus & fibula, subtalar fusion, ankle replacement (failed)
