AMIC® Ankle Surgery

Here are answers to some common questions about AMIC ankle surgery. If you have other questions, please talk to your surgeon.

Will I need to be hospitalized?

Yes. Your AMIC® operation will be performed during a short hospital stay. Before the procedure, your doctor will talk you through the possible risks of the operation.

Will I be under anesthetic?

Yes. An anesthesiologist will discuss your anesthesiology options (general, spinal, or local) with you, and then recommend the most suitable option.

When can I do sports again?

After 3 months, most patients can resume light sports activities like walking, swimming, and cycling. However, healing times vary, depending on each person’s age, general health, and other factors.

 

AMIC® Ankle Rehabilitation

Your doctor will create a post-treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and also based on the specifics of your operation (e.g., the size and location of the damaged cartilage). The plan shown here is just an example of what you can expect. For additional details, download the AMIC® Patient Guide.  

 

If you have questions about AMIC®, please talk to your surgeon.
