Can anyone recommend an excellent foot surgeon in Houston?

There are some doctors on the site I believe from Houston. There are many board pf people that can help you and recommend a foot surgeon from Houston

Before foot surgery I would take a look at ESWT as an option. I believe that is ESWT being performed in Houston Texas.

I believe the foot orthopedic surgeon Dr. Baxter is from Houston. What kind of surgery are you considering.???

I was told by a pod that I have a large fibroma in the arch of my right foot. He said I would definitely need surgery. Do they do ESWT for this and what is ESWT?

No . This will have to be removed if you are having pain and all non-surgical treatment such as steriod injection, Alchol scerotic injections.
have been attempted. So ESWT isn't going to work for this conditon. Only have the surgery if you are in pain and the above isn't helping you at all.

I have injected these with steriod and if they are small enough will reduce in size and reduce in pain. It is worth the try to do this first.

Any information you may need just ask.

Sammy, Dr. Jay Oates has been recommended to me by several friends. He is with the Fondren Orthopedic Group at 713-799-2300. I have not been to him, but they highly recommend him. Hope this helps. Let us hear how it comes out.

My pod is Dr. Thomas Pignetti. He's closer to the Woodlands - but not that far north, if that location is convenient for you. He's a fabulous doc and a terrific surgeon. I'd recommend you check him out. The office number is 281-292-7000. Good luck.

I had EPF surgery performed in October of last year by Dr. Jeffery Bowman. His office is across from Spring Branch Memorial Hospital in S.E. Houston.
His number is 713-467-8886. I think he did a fine job, was very easy to talk to and I had alot of questions before the surgery. He does not perform ESWT, however. Someone in the medical center performs this. I don't know which hospital or doctor, however. Try calling University of Texas Medical Center in Galveston. Another good doctor that was recommended to me by a friend is Dr. Kenrick Dennis. He has an office on the N.W. side of Houston (281-469-2676) as well as at the Memorial Hospital on the Katy Freeway (713-461-7954). Good luck with your decision.

Thank you very much. Do you know if he has done very many cryosurgery procedures?

Re: Houston doctor

Dr. Goldstein on 7/14/06 at 19:01 (204156)

Your best bet is to contact the doctor directly to retrive this information

LisaM, do you mind if I ask, do you live in Houston, or are you associated with Cryotech? I wondered how you knew about this doctor. Thanks.
