Re: Unable to avoid the inevitable-Surgery!

Kimberly, I'm so sorry to hear you are going to have to have surgery again. Once is bad enough, but to have to have it redone. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Re: Podiatrist versus Foot and Ankle Ortho Surgeon?

I agree with going with an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for surgery. I had a general orthopedic surgeon do hammer toe repair years ago and it didn't turn out as well. The foot is complex. ...

Re: Canadian seeking bunionette surgery in the US

knownastron,
