Ankle fusion is a type of surgery to fuse the bones of your ankle into one piece. It’s also known as ankle arthrodesis. The surgery is usually done to treat arthritis in the ankle. This helps stop the pain and swelling. 

In some cases, an ankle fusion can be done with minimally invasive surgery. This uses a smaller incision and a tiny camera to help do the surgery.

You may need an ankle fusion if you have severe arthritis in your ankle. It can cause symptoms such as severe pain, inflammation, and stiffness. These can lead to difficulty walking. The 3 main types of ankle arthritis are: 

  • Osteoarthritis, caused by wear and tear over time
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, caused by an autoimmune disease that affects the joints
  • Arthritis due to previous injury of your joint
