The ankle has been found to be the joint with the greatest incidence of cartilage injury (osteochondral lesions). They are often neglected as it has not been previously been undiagnosed and not widely understood what can be done to address this problem.
Dr David Su has been an early adopter in Singapore in the use of tissue scaffolds in cartilage regeneration in the ankle joint. During ankle arthroscopic debridement, cartilage curettage and microfracture, he uses tissue scaffolds, and many patients have recovered and returned to sports after a period of rehabilitation.
As an orthopaedic surgeon and foot and ankle sub-specialist, Dr David Su has the specific knowledge and experience to help patients suffering from problems in this area, leading them back to recovery.
