"I am so pleased that I decided to have it done as the outcome has been so good. I no longer have the severe pain I was experiencing before and, as a result, my walking has improved significantly. If only my other joints were as good!"   - Six months after total ankle replacement for rheumatoid arthritis ( Foot and Ankle )

"You've done a great job. Iím hiking, although not quite mountaineering yet! Far more importantly, Iím wearing sandals for the first time in years!"   - Six months after great toe fusion surgery ( Foot and Ankle )
