    has anyone out there had surgery (arthroscopic or otherwise) to remove bone spurs in the ankle joint, commonly called a "clean-out" by doctors?

    i am getting a lot of conflicting reports as to the likelihood of success, so i'd love to hear from people who've had the surgery. i'd like ot know how successfulk, you think its been and how long and difficult the recovery was.

    thank you.

    Hi Hobbled..I don't know anything about the surgery, but did find a post by Shannon004 that was going to go through it.

    Type in "arthroscopic" in the search box and it should bring the posts up. You could also try searching "bone spurs" too and something might come up there as well.

    Hope this helps and good luck with your surgery.
