Ankle Ligament Injury Interview on Kiss92

Dr Kevin Lee was on Kiss92 FM to address questions from listeners of the radio station. One of them asked about his ankle ligament injury from a fall from the bicycle. He was advised by an orthopaedic doctor that he might have to go for surgery to treat the injury. He would like to know what are the minimally invasive surgery options available.

Dr Lee recommended that he first seek a second expert opinion on his ankle ligament injury as such injury is mostly treated conservatively. Partial ligament tears can usually heal on its own. The ankle ligament injury only requires surgery if conservative treatments do not work.

Ankle ligament reconstruction is the minimally invasive surgery for treating ankle ligament injury. The entire procedure is done through a small incision and only takes an hour. Patients usually only needs to be on crutches for the first two weeks, and fully recovers by the sixth week.
