Dr. Reagan Parr, board-certified, subspecialty-certified orthopedic surgeon at Appalachian Orthopedics, is the first in the region to perform a total ankle replacement and the region’s only surgeon currently performing this procedure.
The latest option for rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis due to an injury, and advanced osteoarthritis of the ankle, ankle replacement is a motion-sparing alternative to ankle fusion and requires exceptional skill and extensive knowledge to perform.
During total ankle replacement, both sides of the ankle are removed and replaced with specially designed artificial prostheses. The new joint helps to significantly reduce pain and restore strength and mobility to the ankle.
