For the preceding two years I had struggled with arthritic pain in my right ankle which forced me to give up golf and my job as an outside attendant at the golf course. It progressed to the point where I could no longer walk more than 30 yards without severe sciatic pain in my hip from favoring the ankle. My heel had moved inward and my ankle was turning under with each month that passed. I feared being in a wheelchair at 67.
Dear Dr. Parekh,
More than a year and a half has gone by since my first visit to your office when I was diagnosed with Morton’s Neuroma on my right foot. After a period of time wearing a metatarsal pad to try to alleviate the problem, it was determined that surgery was my best option. You and your team guided me through.
Dr. Parekh has exceptional surgical skills and an ability to conceptualize innovative approaches to foot surgery.
As a past and current patient of the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, I wanted to give you some positive feedback regarding a surgery I had with Dr. Selene Parekh and his assistant, Tenaja S. Gay, PA-C on April 1, 2010 at the Davis Ambulatory Hospital.
As way of introduction—approximately 10years ago I had left foot surgery for a bunion. The surgery site continued to be very painful even a year later. Post-surgery, the large toe didn’t function properly and caused the second toe to take over as the large toe. This caused me considerable pain which radiated up the foot and into the leg.
