We specialize in advanced surgical techniques. From minimally-invasive Achilles tendon repair, to Lapiplasty® for bunion correction, and the Cartiva® SCI procedure for arthritis in the big toe joint, our goal is to relieve pain, help you recover quickly, and get you back to the life you love.

Conservative treatments, like orthotics and cortisone injections, can sometimes help relieve the nerve pain. But often, the longest-lasting solution is decompression or nerve removal surgery to provide relief.
Reconstructive surgery is often needed for Cavus Foot (high-arched foot), and Flat Foot Syndrome (fallen arches), as well as ligament repair to restore ankle stability when chronic injuries have occurred.
For stress fractures, regenerative medicine is usually the best approach. For acute fractures, surgery is often needed to repair and stabilize the bones and ligaments, and allow the foot and ankle to align properly and heal.
Achilles Tendon Rupture
As opposed to open surgeries, which take longer to heal, we use a minimally-invasive approach to repair Achilles tendon ruptures. This means a smaller incision, less scar tissue, and less recovery time.
Total Ankle Replacement
Unlike fusion surgery, which limits motion, this surgery is a great option for patients with advanced arthritis. The implant replaces damaged bone and cartilage, relieving pain and preserving full ankle motion.
We use the INFINITY™ Total Ankle Replacement System with the PROPHECY™ Preoperative Navigation System because it allows us to tailor surgery to each individual patient. By using the patient’s CT scan, the system creates a model of their unique anatomy and simulates the surgery, allowing for precision and customization.
We are proud to offer Lapiplasty® – 3D Bunion Correction™, the first and only procedure specifically developed to correct all 3-dimensions of the bunion deformity, treating the root of the problem.
This is a minimally-invasive approach to evaluate and repair various causes of pain in the ankle joint. We use a small camera to navigate through the joint and clean out the debris or scar tissue causing pain.
We also use the arthroscopy approach to evaluate and treat OCD lesions (osteochondral defects) in the ankle resulting from cartilage injury that perhaps has previously occurred and not healed properly.
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
For patients with Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, experiencing chronic burning and tingling on the bottom of the foot or on the heel, we can go in and surgically release the ligament, relieving the pressure on the nerve.
Big Toe Arthritis
For patients with arthritis in the big toe joint, the Cartiva® SCI procedure is an advanced treatment option where we place an implant that acts like natural cartilage in the joints, increasing mobility, and relieving pain.
