to fuse or not to fuse......

Does anyone have information about fusing an arthritic ankle. My doctor suggests that this is all that will help, he is very resistant to considering any other forms of help. I would like more information to help me decide.

    Dear Chris,

    Thank you for your enquiry to Helplines. Ankle problems can be really difficult for people to decide about so I realise that you may want to take your time over this one. We can't paste a link on this question as our articles are hard copies I'm afraid. Can you email us your full name and address (mention ankle problems/fusion) to and we will send you information to read. If you'd prefer to talk over the options, we'd signpost you to a physiotherapist as they can be very helpful on these kinds of issues (especially if they work in an orthopaedic clinic and help people over surgical recovery.)

    I hope we can help further
