Learn about ankle and foot fusion surgery and the foot and ankle specialists who treat these injuries at Northwell Health.
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.
