Abby W.

In the fall of 2021, Abby’s foot hurt while running during cross country meets. We saw several doctors, including orthopedic ones. She had an MRI also. No one could figure it out and another orthopedic doctor said there is nothing wrong. As a frustrated mom, I called Twin Cities Orthopedics. She had an appointment with Dr. Paul Langer. At her appointment he immediately diagnosed her with the collapsed arch. He prescribed inserts. Wearing the inserts and special exercises helped her recover. This last fall season, her cross country team made it to the Minnesota State Cross Country meet. We will be forever grateful to the care she received and will always recommend them to family and friends!

My son (15 year old) was dealing with lateral foot pain. X-rays showed 5th metatarsal fractures on his right foot, and then they showed on his left foot 1 month later. There was no mechanism of injury, he just started hurting with an increase in summer sporting activities. We saw multiple physicians due to the unusual presentation, as it’s typically only one foot and caused by a traumatic event. Fellow healthcare friends advised me to see Dr. Langer. Immediately, he knew we were dealing with a growth plate issue which had an appearance of fractures on an X-ray, but did not clinically present itself like a fracture. He found why this was happening, evaluated X-ray results appropriately, but also used his clinical judgement and was logical in his diagnosis. Without him, my son would be sitting out of fall sports due to these fractures, which weren’t fractures in the first place! Thank you Dr. Langer. You are the BEST!

My 15-year-old daughter has seen Dr. Langer twice in the past few months for ingrown toenail removal. We appreciate how quickly she was able to be scheduled for both visits. Dr. Langer is a personable, calm and caring doctor. He thoroughly explains the situation and your options. He immediately put my daughter at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Langer to anyone having foot issues!

I met Dr. Langer in early October. He is very patient and empathetic. He listened and answered all questions from my husband and me. He showed us where the problems were on the x-ray. What impressed me the most is the outstanding service by his staff members. A day after seeing Dr. Langer, we had a question and left a voicemail for his assistant, Adam. A staff member called back to let me know that Adam was out of the office today and would get back to me when he returned on Monday. She just wanted to inform me so that I didn’t keep on waiting and wondering. On Monday, Adam returned my phone call first thing in the morning. Overall, I’m very pleased with the excellent service provided by Dr. Langer and the outstanding service of his staff. Their actions demonstrate the high professional practice and total patient care.

I am a 53 year old lifelong athlete. At this stage, I enjoy running, biking, skiing, and cross fit. I was referred to Dr. Langer after several years of periodic severe bilateral Achilles Tendonitis. Any time I would exercise it was incredibly painful and both sides of my foot were swollen and painful to the touch. I gave up running. I underwent 3 shock wave therapies, PT and followed the rest and daily workout regime. After 6 months, I am pain free for the first time in years. I have resumed light running without any pain. Shock wave therapy works.

Dr. Langer gets it done quick, without much pain at all, and is very knowledgeable in the field.

I have battled turf toe, arthritis in a specific joint and dealt with chronic pain for 18 months. After hearing I might need surgery I visited Dr. Langer and learned my issues are reasonably straightforward to manage and am not in a position where surgery is even a consideration – yay! I like his openness to listen and work with you. His support staff seems cut from the same cloth. He helped me prepare for a trip the following day and gave me confidence on how to limit and manage any pain from walking. I am a now a believer that a podiatrist is the only specialist to visit for foot ails and think I got lucking finding Dr. Langer.

After battling severe plantars fasciitis for close to two years and exercising all remedies, I finally decided to go ahead with the Tenex procedure as recommended by Dr. Langer. Although the first 7 weeks after the surgery I wasn’t allowed to run, after that I slowly began to ramp up my mileage again. Within 3 months of the surgery I was running 60-70 miles a week and 4 months after I was back to 80-100 miles a week. Now, 9 months after, I am able to do all daily life activities plus maintain a high level of mileage. I highly recommend this surgery to anyone battling severe plantars, regardless if you are an athlete or not.
