Ankle sprains are common injuries that occur in all age groups. In certain instances, patients may continue to sprain their ankle leading to a problem called ankle instability. While most patients improve with a period of rest and rehabilitation, some require surgery. Dr. Nadaud is one of the only surgeons in the area to perform the Arthrobrostrum, an arthroscopic ligament reconstruction. With three tiny poke holes, Dr. Nadaud is able to stabilize the ankle to prevent future ankle sprains.
