  2. Ankle Anatomy
  3. Monday, 30 May 2011
This isn't exactly an anatomy question . Is it possible to treat bursitis with an arthroscopic procedure ? I have had ankle pain for about ten months. I have tried ultrasound treatments and have had two cortisone injections . The surgeon is talking about surgery to 'clean up' the area . Even mentioned removing and reattaching the Achilles tendon. I have no pronounced swelling and only a slight bump on the back of the heel. But I have plenty of pain after I walk on it for a short while . I am 77 and in excellent health and active . Until this came along I played golf almost every day. Any suggestions . Thanks. Robert
