total ankle replacement

today was spent at Vanderbilt hospital taking more xrays and cat scans. The Nashville VA had performed the mri earlier this year. I was informed by the VA that the injury I received in 1987 while in the USMC did not heal properly. Because of this I walk on the outside of my right foot by about 15% offset. This has led to bone on bone for many years with arthritis and bone wear.
The VA said this was too specialized and referred me to Dr. Gallagher at Vanderbilt. they had to cat scan to be able to build the jiggs for surgery. She will be using the Wright Medical device.
My question for you great folks is has anyone had this performed and if so how did it go.
