What are the alternatives to joint fusion surgery?Rob Peoni
Before deciding on fusion as a solution to your joint problems, you might want to consider the alternatives. They include a synthetic cartilage implant that closely resembles natural cartilage without inhibiting natural range of motion. A total joint replacement is another viable alternative to fusion surgery. Artificial ankles and joints mimic the natural movement of your joints, and they’re anchored so they won’t slip or loosen over time.
