A+ in my book for successful diagnosis, surgery, and follow-up.
In December, 2010, I underwent surgery on my right ankle to repair a damaged tendon and related heel bone mis-alignment. The problems were caused by an old knee injury and subsequent years of stress on my ankle. Now, six months later, I am walking straight and pain-free, and am grateful to Dr. Parekh and the NC Orthopaedic Clinic. Dr. Parekh’s diagnosis and treatment plan hit the mark exactly. His approach to the surgery repaired the tendon and corrected the mis-alignmnent.
In follow-up visits in the months after the surgery, he tracked the progress both of the healing from the surgical procedure and also the strengthening of muscles in and around my ankle. His directions regarding physical therapy, coupled with his periodic checks on the tendon and bone healing, achieved the desired result of fully recovered mobility for my leg and ankle.
