About Ankle Arthroscopy
Ankle arthroscopy is performed under a general anaesthetic and many procedures are performed as a daycase. During the surgery, a thin telescope (arthroscope) is inserted into the ankle joint, this allows the surgeon to see the inside of the joint and to operate on the soft tissues of the ankle and to remove bony spurs.
After your operation you will have a padded bandage in place. You will do no harm by gently moving your ankle within your bandages. Before you go home you will be seen by a physiotherapist that will give you advice regarding ankle exercises and how much weight you are allowed to bear on your leg.
