Ankle fusion fuses two or more ankle bones together, effectively stopping the pain and swelling. However, fusion will greatly limit the mobility of your ankle.
On the other hand, ankle replacement replaces the problematic joints, which can end your arthritis pain while preserving more of your mobility. With greater mobility, activities like hiking and climbing stairs will be significantly easier for you.
