What I thought was just an ankle sprain, turned into a life threatening emergency. After the swelling went down on my foot, I thought everything was good. Turns out, I had broken my foot and was unaware the bone had become infected. As the infection became worse, I started to feel extremely sick and ended up in the emergency room. Thanks to TCO’s Dr. TJ Ridley, they found the issue and immediately prepped me for surgery. I remember Dr. Ridley looking at the MRI and saying, “This surgery has gone from trying to save your foot, to saving your life.”
Due to the severe infection, I needed a below the knee amputation. It was a shock, but considering the alternative, there was nothing else to do. I spent 6 days in the hospital, and it took two surgeries to make sure I was clear of the infection. Dr. Ridley assured me I would be up and walking before too long, and after a few weeks of recovery at home, I was able to get the staples removed. Things were progressing nicely and Dr. Ridley referred me to some amazing people who fitted for my prosthetic leg.
By the time I had a follow up appointment with Dr. Ridley, I was able to walk into his office without aid of crutches or a cane. My goal was to be able to walk on my own by Christmas and I’m proud to say I accomplished just that. I have now finished up my physical therapy, and my life is pretty much back to normal. Dr. Ridley and his staff were excellent to work with, always available to answer any questions I had, and helped me maintain a positive attitude, which I believe helped my recovery. I can’t say thank you enough. You literally saved my life.
I was very pleased with the prompt appointment and the diagnosis was thorough, which left me able to make my own choices. Surgery for both of my feet is scheduled and I will be very happy to walk without pain or stumbling. The people I encountered at TCO were professional but showed a sense of humor and concern. Dr. Coetzee was very clear in the diagnosis and I look forward to my next visit. Thank you to all.

I have long been a competitive runner and have dealt with various leg and foot injuries along the way. Dr. David Anderson has taken care of me and always in a conservative manner. I feel confident in Dr. Anderson and that confidence is always borne out with positive results.

Dr. Cammack has been an amazing doctor, helping to minimize the extent of required amputation and enabling me to retain my mobility! He is very attentive and listened to my physical and emotional concerns as well as my short-term and long-term mobility goals. I fully recommend him.

This was my second surgery performed by Dr. Scott McGarvey. The first was bone-on-bone arthritis in my left foot. Now, two years later, he fixed my bunion and hammer toe on the same foot! I recommend Dr. McGarvey, he is knowledgeable, explains every detail of the surgery and is calming to nervous/anxious patients. I am back to walking miles with NO PAIN! Hats off to a job well done! Thank you so much!

I had no idea how much life is slowed down by a broken ankle. After surgery, Dr. Ockuly had a plan for my recovery. We executed the plan and now I am back on my feet. I felt very confident in Dr. Ockuly’s approach and am thankful to him and his team for helping me recover. Thank you, Erik W.

During my consultation with Dr. Tanner he spoke to me with confidence and concern. He described my condition and gave me a variety of options and supported my decision for surgery. My 23-year old son accompanied me to surgery and we were both very impressed and appreciative of the amount of time Dr. Tanner spent with us in pre-op. He asked questions, answered questions, spoke in understandable terminology, but was never condescending. He followed up with my son pot-op as well. My care from Dr. Tanner and his team has been excellent.

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!

For the past 10+ years, I had been searching for an answer to my ever worsening ankle pain which was a result of a motorcycle injury when I was 19, and I’m now 60. Dr. Tanner reviewed my history and completed his examination of my ankle. On that 1st visit he felt that he could ease 50-80% of my pain. I was on board and we scheduled the procedure that same visit. The surgery went well and my recovery was a breeze. I was off pain meds within 3 days and moved to Tylenol after that. I’m now 11 months post surgery and have absolutely NO regrets. This has given me a new lease on life, waterskiing virtually every day this past August, to hiking in Ireland in September. Now I’m back to planning hunting trips with my boys.

Around March 1, 2019, I had an accident. I slipped and broke my ankle. It turned out to be a nasty combination of fractures, displacement and ligament injuries. I was sent to Dr. McGarvey for evaluation and the eventual surgery. He explained everything that was about to take place. His preparation about what to expect really helped me deal with the procedure and the aftermath. I am thrilled with the progress I am having due to the outstanding job Dr. McGarvey did on performing the surgery. I don’t have better words than to say aside from THANK YOU DR. MCGARVEY…you are the best!
