Computer-assisted ankle joint for arthritis

Mr Goldberg used a new computer-assisted technique to ensure the precise positioning of an ankle implant in a woman with bony 'spurs' on her joint.

Using a computer, Andrew Goldberg was able to create a guide to match the contours of the implant with Donna Castle's existing bone joints.

Donna opted for this procedure, and after a month in a plaster cast, six weeks in a cushioned boot and crutches for 10 weeks, her mobility returned to 95%.

More than 1% of ankle replacements fail every year, and Mr Goldberg believes that this new technology will reduce this percentage.
