Baltacha went under the knife after the London Olympics and has been out ever since, although she was named as a non-playing member of the Great Britain Fed Cup team competing in Israel this week.
The 29-year-old has revealed her recuperation was progressing nicely and that she is hoping to return to competition in two months' time.
She said: "The recovery has been going really well.
"It's my third week on court and I'm hitting really well, working on my condition.
"My ankle seems to be fine, I just need to maintain it.
"Hopefully I will be back in April. Closer to the time I will make a decision."
