I saw Dr Gamez for my chronically swollen/painful left ankle (since 1994). He did not suggest surgery (I was surprised) but an ankle brace. I replied, "Oh, this is like the 30 others I have in my closet." But I went home and tried it. Wow! Using this brace sets my ankle in place where it is allowed...more
