My ankle replacement came after experiencing tremendous pain in my ankle due to arthritis which badly affected my quality of life.
After the ankle replacement surgery I am now back to full, pain-free mobility - no limp! My return to my hobby of shooting, walking working dogs all day for 3 to 4 days a week over many uneven ploughed fields, slopes and woodland was achieved without any discomfort.
I can thoroughly recommend an ankle replacement - it gave me back a pain free perfect ankle and my quality of life - even at 70+ years of age.
In March 2007 I had an ankle replacement operation at the BMI Priory Hospital in Birmingham.
The expertise of the surgeon and the nursing staff resulted in a very successful operation. The very high standard of hygiene and after care of all the staff gave me great confidence.
The Pre-operative information I received was of great value to me and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Foot and Ankle Clinic to any future patient.
After a year, my mobility and freedom from pain is amazing and I am very thankful I underwent the operation.
One of the best things I did was find someone who'd already had an ankle replacement and spending an afternoon talking to her. It was then that I definitiely decided to proceed with the surgery.
There were two days in the hospital with the operated leg being surprisingly free from pain given the circumstances.
Some eighteen months after the ankle replacement operation I would say that I am a very satisfied customer with a full range of movement, just the same as the other side and walking normally without pain.
