... Hi all - I had a small piece of bone (OS trigonum) in my ankle removed on July 29th, 2016. It has now been about 12 weeks. Although the ankle has gotten better very slowly in the last few weeks I have constant swelling by the end of the day. When I wake up I do not really have much swelling but I still can not comfortably run or jog and the inflammation just does not seem to... (1 replies)

... nths ago playing soccer. I thought it was just an ankle sprain. The pain lingered when I ran or jumped, so I finally had it examined. My doctor believes my Os Trigonum is pressing against the tendon and that is causing my pain. I've been in a walking boot for 3 weeks and I had a cortisone shot 10 days ago. ... (10 replies)

... Is there a way to find out online how often they do the procedure? I called both of the offices and their staff sounded genuinely surprised by the question. They said they would get back to me. I called the out of network doc's office to see if they can reduce the price. The woman responsible for these matters is out to lunch, so I have to wait. (10 replies)
... A podiatrist who is a podiatric surgeon is ok. I would really make the decision based on which of them does this type of procedure more often. (10 replies)
... You're probably right because right now I'm questioning whether I really want the surgery. I started looking at doctors in network. One guy is a podiatrist who specializes in surgery of the foot and ankle. The other guy is an orthopaedist who specializes in the foot and ankle. Any thoughts on a podiatrist vs. orthopaedist? I know it's been discussed here. I'm leaning... (10 replies)
... Ah, you're having one of those conversations with them. All health insurance companies do that. My personal belief is that it's a way of making sure you really want the surgery bad enough. (10 replies)
... Hi, Thanks for your reply. I have the procedure code (27680) and I spent an hour on the phone yesterday with United. They couldn't give me an answer. I spoke to the customer service person and he sent me to another person and she spent an hour trying to get an answer. She was going to transfer me back, but I had to get back to work. The person at my out of... (10 replies)
... The in network doctor can bill whatever he wants but he has signed a contract with united healthcare and must accept whatever their approved charges are. If you could find out the procedure code then United Healthcare can tell you what that charge is. I as a doctor don't even know what these amounts are for the most part because every insurance company is different and they... (10 replies)
... Probably similar to what the other doctor wanted, maybe somewhat more. You do need to ask them to find out. (10 replies)
... I have a 80/20 plan for in-network surgery. I would be responsible for 20%. United Healthcare can't tell me how much I will be paying 20% of. Right now, I think the only way I'll get an answer is the get a second opinion and get a cost estimate from the in-network office. I was just hoping I could find this out without waiting for a second doctor. (10 replies)
... Look up the details of your plan. You should have a copy of it lying around, or maybe your employer's human resource department can give you one. See what the "outpatient surgery" benefit is. It might be covered in full, or it might be 90% of the cost, or you might have a fixed copay like $100. (10 replies)
... Saw my doc yesterday... good and bad results The results of the Brostrum x3 and tendon repair x2 are really good, the Os Trigonum excision caused a lot of scar tissue in rearfoot and I formed a moderately large calcification in almost the same spot (rear of talus). Most of the osteochondral defects (microfracture/picking, drilling, etc) seemed to work fairly well and show... (22 replies)
... and Os Trigonum excision. Not "thrilled" with total outcome but ligs and tendons are much better. OS said lateral lesions are showing slow filling with fibrocartilage. ... (29 replies)
