He has dedicated his life to helping people return to activities that they have otherwise been unable to participate in due to lower extremity conditions such as ingrown toenails, bunions, hammertoes, flatfeet, ankle sprains, and limb salvage secondary to traumatic injury and diabetic complications. His care and treatment of his patients is to the highest degree.
