Hi, I have been diagnosed with tarsal tunnel and recently it's gotten really bad. I'm ready for surgery ASAP. Does anyone know of a really good
doctor in Oregon or if not, Cal. They would have to take W. comp ins.
Thanks so much for any help!

Dr. Roger Mann, THE foot and ankle orthopedic surgery specialist (he literally wrote many of the textbooks) is in Oakland.

I know someone who went to see Dr. Roger Mann last year, in September or October I think. (She wasn't all that impressed by him, though.)

Perhaps he isn't seeing very MANY patients, but unless he has retired very recently, he is seeing some.

I was planning on the bay area or Sacramento but L.A. might work, since I live in Oregon I will be traveling, but i do know a few people in Bay 'Area. Thanks, I've heard of Dr Mann, not sure if my WC ins will agree to him. Also heard Dr Glen Pfeffer in sf and Dr carol frey at ucla are well known. Any more thoughts would be appreciated. Hope this works. Thanks!

After reading some posts, this may not be as easy as I thought. If you have
numbness/tingling 2-3 inches below the ankle, inside of foot, burning on the bottom of feet,especially the arch and sometimes the toes, along the 1st metatarsal, the outside of foot also. burning (not numbness) right below ankle, and running up to calf. also with too much use stabbing pain in large toe. May have a problem with ligaments because seem to have nerve entrap in other areas and hips are clicking. think i need a good doc.
