Your foot has 42 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, and at least 50 ligaments and tendons. All of these parts work together in an intricate way, and each part is critical in moving you through your daily life.

Many surgical procedures that are performed in a hospital require large incisions and many times general anesthesia. A major factor in recovery time and discomfort is the amount of tissue that has been involved by the incision and the risk of surgery is multiplied by general anesthesia.
Ambulatory foot surgery, in most instances, is performed in an office or an outpatient surgical center under local anesthesia.
A small incision is made in the patients’ skin and a specially designed instrument is inserted into this opening. The entire procedure is performed through this tiny opening.
At the conclusion of the surgery, a few stitches may be used to close the opening and a small bandage protects the area. The patient generally leaves the office walking, and in many instances in his own shoes!
The condition has been corrected, the patient remains ambulatory and discomfort and prolonged disability have been avoided
The Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement System (STAR) has been approved by the FDA. The new ankle prosthesis is the first of its type — a mobile-bearing device (bearings move across a polyethylene surface). There are several fixed-bearing ankle devices that are already FDA-approved. With fixed-bearing devices, the articulating surface is attached or molded to one of its metallic parts.
The STAR presents another option to ankle fusion surgery and is said to more closely function like a natural ankle. As a condition of approval, the manufacturer will evaluate safety and effectiveness for 8 years.

Joint replacement, as a centre of excellence at Global Hospitals, hosts a dedicated Operation Theatre and ICU and is supported by highly skilled and specially trained support staff.
