Bone or joint fusion surgery, called arthrodesis, is performed to relieve arthritis pain in the ankles and foot. In arthrodesis, two bones on each end of a joint are fused, eliminating the joint itself and making one continuous bone.
This surgery is typically quite successful with the diagnosis currently Obtained. A very small percentage of patients have problems with wound healing or bone healing. The biggest long-term problem with fusion is the development of arthritis at the joints adjacent to those fused.
