Do I really need ankle ligament surgery?
The ankle is one of the most injury prone areas of the body. There are over 1 million ankle injuries each year in the United States alone. It is pretty easy to see why; a simple wrong step on the pavement can cause extreme discomfort. The injury is such an issue that about 20% of sports related injuries are caused from ankle injuries. Ankle ligaments play a large part in ankle injuries as a whole.
