I suffered a climbing accident in 2009 and caused major damage to my sub talar joint. As a result of that accident I now have necrosis in that joint. Is there any sort of corrective surgery apart from fusion that I can have done? Is there any sort of surgical implant that can replace the talar joint? Do you know of any break through surgical procedures that are being trialled? I am relatively young (37) and I have a young family and would like to remain active.
I now apparently have a arthritic subtalar joint after a dislocated fractured calcaneous.11 months ago. I just had a cortisone shot and hoping for the best.
I have been told having the joint fused is down the road. i also would like ot avoid this. Interested on your inquiry response.
