Foot & Ankle Conditions

  • Osteochondral Injuries of the AnkleOsteochondral Injuries of the Ankle

    The ankle joint is formed by the articulation of the end of the tibia and fibula (shinbones) with the talus (heel bone). Osteochondral injuries, also called osteochondritis dissecans in adolescents, are injuries to the talus bone.
