An outgrowth of bone on a joint is called a bone spur or osteophyte. As Simon Moyes shows, bone spurs can impede movement and result in sharp pain in the ankle. He shows how arthroscopic surgery can be used to shave off the bony spurs and restore ease of movement to the ankle.

Mr Simon Moyes specialises in arthroscopic and minimally invasive treatment for problems of the knee, shoulder, foot and ankle. He uses arthroscopy to carry out an effective and accurate diagnosis of your problem.

Simon Moyes combines the latest in sophisticated technology with his considerable experience as an orthopaedic surgeon.

Based in London, Simon Moyes consults in three different London based locations.

Osteophytes
Also known as bone spurs, these are lumps that form on the bones as a resultof arthritis.Simon Moyes treats bone spurs (also known as footballer's ankle andOsteophytes)
What is it?
When bone is damaged, the bone cells sometimes over-compensate andcreate extra bone. This can result in lumps forming on the bone, called bonespurs or osteophytes. They are especially common in osteoarthritis, a diseasethat causes the bones of the joints to wear away.The bony protrusions can cause problems in the joints- affecting movementand causing impingement in the soft tissue.
How does it feel?
If the osteophytes are pinching the soft tissue, you are likely to feel pain andstiffness, which usually increases during and after activity. You might find thatyou don´t have full range of movement, if the bone spurs are inhibiting thehinging action of the ankle. There is likely to be some inflammation in the joint,especially after activity.
Diagnosis
An x-ray will be used to determine the extent of the malformation of the bonesin the joint. An MRI scan may be used to assess any cartilage or other softtissue damage.
