This study describes the history, diagnosis, and treatment of lateral ankle instability. Recurrent ankle instability is a common entity that results from repeated ankle sprains. Reconstruction of the ligament complex with an anatomic repair is the standard of care. The purpose of this study is to present a surgical technique, which demonstrates that immediate postoperative weight bearing along with a rehabilitation program can lead to satisfactory outcomes. In the authors' opinion, this technique reduces the need for crutches and the restriction of activities of daily living in the early postoperative period.
