In April 2018, I had sudden onset pain to my right ankle and the pain was limiting my ability to walk.  I contacted my primary care physician and he referred me to Dr. Jordan Stewart, a foot and ankle specialist and surgeon, at the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center.  I was scheduled quickly, and Dr. Stewart immediately identified my problem and told me that I sprained my ankle and injured my tendons.  He placed me in an ankle brace to stabilize my ankle and he also suggested laser therapy to help with the healing process.  The laser therapy is not covered by health insurance and there was zero pressure from Dr. Stewart or his staff to pursue the therapy, rather it was just given as an option to help speed up the healing process. Given that I am very active, I did not hesitate to pursue the laser therapy.  I knew I made the right decision as after just 3 treatments with the laser my pain was gone and 9 months later it is still gone. 

On December 5, 2018, my active husband rolled his ankle on the driveway and his pain and swelling were severe.  His pain was 9/10 in severity and he could barely walk.  I immediately remembered my positive experience with Dr. Stewart and the next day we were scheduled to see him.  Dr. Stewart diagnosed my husband with a severe ankle sprain and he immediately immobilized him in a brace, provided him with compression stockings, and suggested laser to help with the injury and the healing process.  I shared my positive experience with my husband and we did not hesitate to get him started on laser therapy immediately.  Within 11 days of his injury and after just 4 laser sessions and no use of medications, his pain was gone and has not returned since.  He is now back to physical activity in less than 1 month after a significant ankle sprain.

The staff at the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center is very friendly and they are extremely accommodating in scheduling appointments.  We were always greeted with a smile and felt very comfortable in the office.  The laser therapy is a great value for the money spent.  We both improved in a very short time and attribute this to following Dr. Stewart’s thorough instructions and being treated with laser therapy.  The 10 treatments were effective, pain-free, and took less than 15 minutes to complete.  Even better, neither of us had to take any medication to eliminate our pain therefore reducing the chance of side effects from medications.

If you are looking for a practice that can manage all your foot and ankle needs, my husband and I highly recommend Dr. Jordan Stewart and the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center.
