Andrea and I met 4 months ago for her aching left foot with a bump called a Os Navicularis.  We discussed non-surgical and surgical options.  After seeing more than one second opinion, she choose me to do her Kidner procedure.  She wanted everything to be transparent and straightforward and I'm sure her expectations were met.  I made sure aesthetics were also met since she's in the beauty industry.  A plastic surgery skin closure was important.  After her surgery, she did so well that early weightbearing was possible.
She's now 3 months post-op and doing great sporting her new boots around town.

Anthony is my hero. He is a young vet that served our country in Iraq. 
He suffers from flatfeet his whole life and elected to have one foot reconstructed. After the first week, he surprisingly took only one pill of pain medication and currently not in pain. We are progressing quickly and are both excited to see his new foot. He has given me permission to document his journey.
We also made history, I was the first to do a flatfoot reconstructive surgery in Sharp Coronado.
Proud of you Anthony!
