Midfoot / Hindfoot / Ankle Fusions are surgical procedures performed to help relieve pain in the foot and correct deformities in the midfoot, hindfoot or ankle areas caused by injury, trauma, arthritis or genetic defect. To achieve this, the procedure fuses a specific combination of bones in the relevant area. Ankle braces such as the ones below can help to stabilize the foot structures after the surgery and promote more rapid healing. They may also provide the compression needed to reduce swelling during this period. Please consult with your doctor to ensure that your choice of brace is the right one for you.
