Sabrina Ionescu Undergoes Successful Ankle Procedure
WNBA reports New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu underwent a minor ankle procedure performed by HSS foot and ankle surgeon Martin J. O’Malley, MD in New York City. The minimally-invasive procedure removed calcified scar tissue that was irritating a tendon behind Ionescu’s ankle. She is expected to soon be cleared by the Liberty’s medical staff to return to physical activity.
“Sabrina had a minor ankle procedure to remove a loose bone chip that was irritating a tendon behind her ankle,” said Dr. O’Malley. “This chip that occurred during her sprain in July, did not involve the ankle joint cartilage surface and we expect a complete recovery. The ligaments she tore during her injury have all completely healed and there was no need for an ankle ligament stabilization procedure.”
