About Center Grove Foot & Ankle Care, P.C.

As a former runner and triathlete, I know what it's like to deal with foot and ankle pain. It's part of the reason I've devoted my life to specializing in foot and ankle care. Each patient is unique, with their own circumstances. I try to treat each patient, not just their condition. As your physician, I will take the time to fully understand your goals and concerns so that we can develop the best possible treatment plan. Here your visit will be pleasant, with on-time appointments and little or no waiting, and you'll leave with all your questions answered.

Over the years, I've learned many ways to provide state-of-the-art care with a genuine personal touch. I always begin with conservative, nonsurgical methods, but should you eventually require surgical treatment, you can rest assured you'll be getting hospital-trusted expertise and today's most trusted and effective techniques. My surgical skills have their roots in my two-year surgical residency at Thorek Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago which included emergency room trauma and comprehensive diabetic wound management.
