Ankle Arthrosis / Ankle Arthritis - TAR
TAR stands for Total Ankle Replacement / TAA stands for Total Ankle Arthroplasty.
Joint degeneration of the upper ankle is mostly caused by accidents, Rheumatoid arthritis; joint destruction due to deformities, etc. An improvement can be mostly achieved through an operation.
We need to have information about soft tissue conditions, bone structure and the degree of degenerative joint disease (DJD) of the Foot and Ankle. We will then be able to provide a good and safe recommendation about possible procedures. If surgery is required, a suitable method will be researched, discussed and implemented. But a fusion procedure of the ankle joint is rarely necessary. The decision can only be carried-out once a medical examination and diagnosis has taken place.
