orthopedic ankle surgeon

Posted by anne on April 16, 2013, 7:09 pm

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest to me the best ankle orthopedic surgeon in Mexico.

Some of you may already know that I lost my right foot 12 yrs ago in a car crash. They were able to reattach it, but it hurt lots. Then, 5 yrs ago I had the foot fused to my leg to reduce the pain. They told me it would last about 5 yrs and then I'd need a total ankle replacement.

It's failed--wobbling, hurting, etc. I'm looking for a specialist in ankles who routinely performs this type of surgery. Guadalajara, Mexico City, wherever.

I'm in somewhat of a hurry to get to him/her to avoid a possible breakage.

If anyone has any suggestion please let me know as soon as you can.

Thanks so much, Anne

PS. When I get my ankle replaced---look out. I'll be climbing the hill beside the bay and dancing till the wee hours.....
