Arthroscopy, or arthroscopic surgery, can be used to diagnose and/ or treat ankle and foot problems using a less invasive procedure. During arthroscopy, the doctor makes tiny incisions at the site and inserts an arthroscope and tiny surgical instruments through the incisions. The arthroscope is a fiber-optic camera that allows the doctor to view and diagnose internal damage. The procedure makes it possible to view and assess the problem as well as perform surgical corrections, such as removing cartilage and repairing damaged joints and tissue. Arthroscopic surgery reduces trauma to surrounding tissue and cuts down on swelling, healing time, and the risk of infection. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
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.
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.
Not only is Dr. Stevens an amazing Dr., he is kind and patient. Having an elderly father, he always took the time to make him feel comfortable and welcome. Thank you Dr. Stevens for your professionalism and and for your kind disposition! The world is blessed to have such a great, kind and wonderful Doctor. […]
Everyone at the office is extremely professional and friendly. Appointments are easily made and of course the doctors are great!
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.
