There are many reasons for ankle surgery, such as injuries, congenital defects, and degenerative diseases that lead to ankle deformities. As a result of these conditions, the ankle bone structure may need realignment through surgical procedures to reduce pain, restore mobility, and lessen difficulties walking. The type of ankle surgery necessary varies from condition to condition, but most are done as outpatient procedures. The surgery may involve removal of the deformity as well as realignment. Temporary and/ or permanent fixation devices can be required internally and externally for the ankle to keep proper alignment post-surgery and in the future. The doctor will advise the patient on the recovery process and duration, as well as appropriate home care and physical therapy to restore mobility and strength.
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
Dr. Stevens is a brilliant podiatrist! I always know that my feet are well taken care of because Dr. Stevens is highly knowledgeable. He frequently attends seminars to learn about the latest procedures and medicines. He is wise, kind, and he has a great sense of humor as well. I highly recommend him!
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
Still want more feedback on numbness, but understand waiting. Ingrown nail procedure was the 5th I’ve had, and the first that was 100% pain free. Doctor was thorough, answered all my questions politely, and gave me some confidence this would all go away on its own. Glad I chose this place.
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Dear Dr. Gomez: One of the strongest of all relationships is the one between a physician and a patient.

We are delighted to let you know that Mr. and […]
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
I especially appreciate the friendly, respectful reception by the staff and the on-time care and attention to small (and big) problems provided by Dr. Stevens.
