Your heart's arteries may become blocked or narrowed due to a buildup of cholesterol, cells or other substances (plaque).

It is not a major surgery and causes little pain.
Arthroscopy of the foot and ankle is used to examine and treat joint conditions. The procedure uses an arthroscope, a thin fiber-optic camera, that enables the surgeon to view close-up imagines of the inside of the ankle and/or foot while working. This usually allows for a less invasive procedure than traditional open surgery, as only a small incision is necessary for the arthroscope, which is about as wide as a drinking straw.
Ankle and foot fusion surgery consists of procedures that fuse two or more bones together in the ankle or foot. The most common reason an ankle fusion is performed is to correct damage due to degenerative arthritis in the ankle, which wears down the protective cartilage surrounding the joints in the ankle. The cartilage allows the bones to glide in and out of the joints smoothly, so loss of the cartilage causes the bones to rub against each other painfully.
