Ankle Replacement and CMT

By Anonymous July 12, 2015 - 10:11am

My surgeon has suggested a total ankle replacement due to severe ankle arthritis and a second surgeon agreed. I am 62 years old and have CMT. My surgeon reconstructed my foot 3 years ago. The problem is my insurance (BCBS) will not approve ankle replacement due to my CMT. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
