Total Ankle Replacement

General Information Patient Testimonials
Before Surgery
Flexion and Extension shortly after surgery


Dr. Buechel and Dr. Cuomo offer total ankle consultations to patients who suffer from severe and debilitating arthritis of the ankle joint.  The S.T.A.R. ® is the FDA approved Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement offered by the surgeons of South Mountain Orthopaedic Associates, LLC. 
The surgery is rapidly gaining acceptance as an alternative method of treating severe ankle pain often associated with crippling arthritis.  It is an alternative to ankle Arthrodesis which fuses the bones together.  Fusion eliminates mobility and generally leaves a patient with an unsparing limp and a stiff ankle joint.   With ankle replacement, many patients can comfortably walk again, climb stairs, play golf and ride a bicycle ! 

Interested patients are welcome to contact Donna (800) 249-6479 to schedule a convenient consultation or complete the Contact Us Form.
