Ankle Instability Repair

Are you experiencing ankle instability or suffering from ankle pain due to frequent sprains? Ankle instability can result in painful conditions and can prevent you from doing the activities you love. With the help of an orthopedic surgeon and products like suture anchors for soft tissue repair, you can get back to an active lifestyle.

The Role of Suture Anchors

Ankle instability is caused by damage to the lateral (outside) ankle ligaments and often occurs when an ankle sprain has not healed properly. Patients may experience a sense of instability and inability to place weight on the ankle. If surgery is required to repair the damaged ligaments, your surgeon may use suture anchors for the repair. Anika offers many different suture anchors for these types of procedures, including the Twist Knotless DEX Screw-In Suture Anchors that are extremely reliable, strong and have the advantage of being MRI-friendly (patients with certain types of metal in their bodies cannot undergo an MRI).
