Ankle- Osteochondral fracture and torn ligament?

I sprained my ankle 2 months ago and have been wearing a brace, but still have pain. I saw two doctors. The first was a podiatrist who does foot and ankle surgery. He recommended that I have arthroscopic surgery to repair an osteochondral lesion and a surgery to repair a torn ligament where the tendon replaces the ligament. I got a second opinion and the second doctor agreed with the first about hte osteochondral lesion, but didn't think I completely tore the ligament. These are the only two reliable foot/ankle doctors and/or orthopedics doctors that are geographically accessible. So how do I know if I need the ligament surgery? Also, is it recommedended to do OCD arthroscopy without drilling?

Softens and remove corns in a most comfortable way. It is ideal to help relieve pain on a toe or finger affected by corns, blebs, blisters, hammertoes, calluses and digital traumas.
