Only a person who has suffered an ankle injury truly understands the excruciating pain associated with it. Since the ankle bears the body’s weight, any injury to it needs careful treatment and a skilled orthopedic surgeon to set it right. Ankle bone grafting in Mexico is a viable option for treating injuries without burning a hole in the pocket. A patient may require a bone graft for a complex fracture or for one that hasn’t healed properly.
Besides ankle bone grafting, a number of other orthopedic procedures too such as knee replacement, hip resurfacing and hip replacement in Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana and other leading cities in Mexico are finding takers in those who cannot afford the procedures in their home countries.
Ankle injuries — either due to sporting activities or in the normal course — are not very uncommon. According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), approximately one million people in the US suffer from ankle injuries annually.
