Ankle Distraction surgery

Posted by gatto @gatto, Feb 5, 2019

Has anyone had "Ankle Distraction" surgery where more space is created between the joint? I want to know if the Mayo Clinic does it, but don't know where or how to ask. Thank you. Julie

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Bones, Joints & Muscles group.

If you go to and search on the phase "ankle distraction" you should be able to learn whether they do the surgery.

Good Luck!


I typed that in, but did not find the information. I saw sources footnoted on what I am guessing is a total ankle joint replacement, but no information besides that. Thank you, I will do some research and maybe call the clinic itself? Julie


Sorry I did not actually try to search before I replied to you.There is a Foot and Ankle Clinic at Mayo-Rochester….perhaps they can give you some answers.


Thank you, I will check with them. Julie
