Innovative Technology Gets Patients with Chronic Ankle Sprains Back on Their Feet

We are proud to announce that our practice is now offering an innovative technology to help our patients with chronic ankle sprains get back on their feet faster!

Dr. Marc Borovoy is one of a few exclusive podiatrists in the area trained to utilize the InternalBrace ligament augmentation system. The simple, safe and reproducible technique uses a BioComposite SwiveLock anchor and FiberTape suture that supports the ankle and prevents the possibility of a secondary injury, similar to wearing a seat belt for support.

If conservative treatments fail to relieve chronic ankle pain and/or sprains, surgical intervention with InternalBrace ligament augmentation should be considered. The surgical repair can restore function, add strength, and allow for immediate range of motion, which promotes healthy ligament healing and leads to a stronger, more stable ankle.

“This is a common injury that affects millions of people each year,” says Dr. Borovoy. “Up to 70% of people who have sprained their ankle will suffer another sprain in the future and this treatment can protect our patients from reinjury.”

If you or someone you know suffers from chronic ankle sprains, call our office today at (248)348-5300 to learn more about this innovative procedure!
