Re: ankle fusion and cuttingof the fibia

i've been avoiding that surgery for about 5 years now.I've been told by several specialist that this is a temp. fix and should only be done as a last resorce.The problem with this proceedure is that it causes presure on surrounding jionts and that after 5 to 10 years you will have to fuse them also.I've been using braces for 9 years now and am doing pretty good but slowly geting worse.Trying to go as long as possible before that process.sorry to hear about your miss fortune and wish you luck for the future.

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
