Our Web site aims to be informative and helpful. Inside you'll find descriptions of several common foot and ankle conditions, along with questions to some frequently asked questions about foot surgery. There are also links to other useful resources and Web sites.
If you are a current patient, or expect to become one, you can meet our staff and find out how to contact the appropriate member of the team. If you are having surgery, you can find instructions about what to do before your operation and what to expect afterwards.
Our goal is to help you get back on your feet as quickly and painlessly as possible, and to educate and inform you as you travel the road to better health.
