There are several great orthopadics who deal with TTS in Baltimore, MD.

Dr. Mark Myerson is an expert on foot and ankle reconstruction and injury. He leads 'The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction' at Mercy Hospital.

Then there is Dr. Lew Schon of Greater Chesapeake Orthopaedic Associates (www.gcoa.net) located at Union Memorial Hospital. He worked with Dr. Myerson.

I have seen both and believe they are excellant doctors. Of course there is Dr. Dellon, also located in Union Memoerial Hospital.

I hope this helps!

Where do you live? One source of podiatrists is http://www.acfas.org
Unless you have access to a foot and ankle orthopedic subspecialist, you will find that podiatrist have significantly more experience with TTS than general orthopedic surgeons.
