Ankle replacement needed

Posted by @kareniowa, Jun 8, 2016

I have a friend that has been told that her “ankle is a mess and should be replaced”! Not sure what that means but would appreciate feedback from anyone that has had this procedure done. She lives in Illinois and is looking for information and a surgeon for a second opinion.

Thanks for reaching out the group, @kareniowa. I’m tagging @gwenie and @gene47, who may be able to provide their thoughts and recommendations as they both posted on Connect about ankle replacement. Should your friend wish to consult Mayo Clinic for a second opinion, please use the following contact information http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

Can you tell us more about why your friend has been recommended to have her ankle replaced? Knowing this information may help the group provide more advice and support, as well as encourage others who may be going through something similar to connect with you.

I have since found out that she has found a highly recommended Dr. near Chicago. Thank you for this great “Mayo support site”.
