My Pledge

In today’s society we tend to look for guarantees and sure bets. If you’ve read about what can go wrong with surgery, you know that it would be unfair for anyone to promise a perfect outcome. Of course, the odds do weigh heavily in your favor.

While I cannot guarantee the outcome of your surgery, I can guarantee one thing: my 100% effort. If your case is challenging and takes longer than expected, I can assure you that nobody will rush and we’ll stay as long as it takes. If you have a problem after surgery, you can be seen any time of day, any day of the week.

People often ask me, why feet? Feet certainly are not glamorous. But if you’ve found your way to this site, you may have a sense of how disabling foot and ankle pain can be. You probably understand how a dysfunctional foot can interfere with your life.

Approximately 30 years ago, I underwent the first of three major surgeries on my own foot. These were hindfoot reconstructions for a congenital problem, and one procedure was complicated by a nerve injury. This personal journey has instilled in me true compassion for patients with foot and ankle problems. I have lived with foot pain and through long recovery periods. Because of this, I am devoted to helping others with foot and ankle pain. I am driven to continually improve my surgical skills and knowledge, and to advance our field through teaching and clinical research.

Foot and Ankle Surgery will always be complex and challenging. I appreciate this from both my personal and professional experience. Nevertheless, there is one guarantee that I stand by, and that’s my 100% effort and devotion to your care. This is my pledge.
