Dr Tay Guan Tzu published an article on his minimally invasive surgical technique for treating lateral ankle instability. His modified Brostrom-Gould procedure advocated here is a percutaneous procedure. The wounds are considerably smaller and Dr Tay’s method of reconstructing the ligaments allows testing of the strength of the reconstruction intra-operatively.

What is Ankle Instability?
Ankle instability is caused by injury to the lateral ankle ligaments. This usually causes strain or stretch, and in some cases, it may cause a tear in the ligaments.
People who have a sprained ankle might develop chronic ankle instability. This condition often happens after repeated ankle sprains which lead to further weakening of the ligaments, resulting in greater instability and the likelihood of developing additional problems in the ankle.
