SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J., June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — It feels like you’ve tried everything—canes, braces, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, steroid injections, orthotics, custom-made shoes, etc., but nothing has yet to work to relieve your ankle pain. When you’ve exhausted all other options, the answer could be a total ankle replacement.
At the Kayal Foot & Ankle Center, Dr. Chad Rappaport specializes in treating the full spectrum of foot and ankle conditions and problems. He has the skills and experience to handle the most complicated and delicate ankle replacement surgery challenges.
Dr. Rappaport, a reviewed and approved NJ Top Doc, is among an elite group of podiatrists in the country who are board-certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery in reconstructive rearfoot, ankle and foot surgery.
The training, skill and experience of your surgeon are paramount when you are undergoing total ankle replacement because the procedure is technically demanding. Dr. Rappaport is one of the most respected ankle and knee specialists around. He’s truly the surgeon you want in the operating room for your procedure.
You might be wondering if you are a good candidate for total ankle replacement surgery. The best candidates are healthy people who suffer from ankle arthritis but have minimal or no deformity of the ankle. They also weigh less than 250 pounds, are older than 50 and are at the lower end of the physical activity spectrum.
However, every patient and every situation is unique. It’s important for you to discuss your specific condition and treatment options with Dr. Rappaport or another expert specially trained in foot and ankle problems, like Dr. Theresa Ronna, also a reviewed and approved NJ Top Doc, to determine the best course of action for you.
Dr. Ronna is board certified and specializes in podiatry. She has trained with many highly regarded pioneers in the field of sports medicine. She has been part of the medical team for several NYC marathons, pre-Olympic games, the Fourth All African games in Nairobi, Kenya, the World Games in Rome, Italy, and the Can-Am Rugby tournament in Lake Placid.
Dr. Rappaport and Dr. Ronna will address all of your questions and concerns in a direct, honest and reassuring manner
