Preparation to the operation
A successful ankle operation requests a path of clinical and instrumental diagnostic, sometimes elaborated (RX-TAC 3D-RNM). In ankle operations the specialized surgeons cooperate with physiotherapists to prepare the patient for the operation.
This permits to carry out a more effective operation and prepares patient for a greater postoperative recovery which, depending on seriousness of disease, can be very short: in many cases the patient can start walking after few days from operation. In case of osteochondral or ligamentous complex operations the recovery can last on average from 4 to 6 weeks.
