Doctors complete total ankle replacement
from Star Banner
Two doctors at Munroe Regional Medical Center located in Ocala, Fla., recently became the first in the area to complete a total ankle replacement. Dr. Robert Linn Jr. and Dr. Scott Goldstein, of Foot and Ankle Center of Ocala, Fla., operated on the patient for four hours, replacing an arthritic ankle with a metal and polymer joint. The procedure is new compared to hip and knee replacements. "The ankle is a different type of a joint," Linn said. "Previously, the construct was complicated by the anatomy."
