What is External Fixation?
External fixation is a device that is placed externally on the foot or ankle to provide stability, correction, and protection from further damage. This type of treatment has been used for centuries, providing a range of options for different conditions. Open fractures and dislocations, limb deformities, infections, joint fusions, and mal-unions are all conditions that may be treated with an external fixator. It has also been used to correct abnormal bone growth (brachymetarsal correction) as well as Charcot Neuroarthopathy.
At Florida Foot and Ankle Specialists, our experienced podiatrists have the knowledge necessary to understand when external fixation is required and can help you make informed decisions about your treatment plan. If you think you may be a candidate for this procedure, don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn more.
