Surgery for a Swollen Ankle in Charleston, SC

In some cases, swelling in the feet, legs, or ankles goes away on its own. For swelling that lasts longer than a couple of days, it is recommended that you seek clinical care from a sports medicine specialist. Our practice is pleased to offer treatment for your swollen ankle in Charleston, SC, including surgical intervention as a last resort. Our goal is to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

What Causes Swollen Ankles?

There are a number of factors that may contribute to your swollen ankle, including:

  •   Oedema, a build-up of fluid caused by being overweight or by being too sedentary.
  •   Injuries, including strains and sprains.
  •   Blood clots.
  •   Infections.
  •   Insect bites or stings.

When is Surgery Needed?
