I first visited Dr. Stewart with severe foot swelling and pain after rolling my right foot and ankle. He diagnosed with a fractured fifth metatarsal and a sprained ankle. I was immediately impressed with Dr. Stewart and his aggressive conservative treatment plan to get me back to full speed as soon as possible.
In addition to this recent injury, I have had previous ankle injuries with soft tissue damage that needed to be treated. I was placed in a walking boot and compression stockings and I rested, iced, and elevated my foot. Dr. Stewart discussed adding therapeutic laser to my treatment as my goal was to get better as quickly as possible. I had never heard of laser therapy, but quickly learned that it reduces pain and inflammation and it helps accelerate soft tissue healing. Dr. Stewart answered all my questions regarding the treatment, with no pressure to proceed. I was willing to do anything to heal quickly and decided to move forward with the treatment.
I could not be more pleased with the outcome. I was very diligent in doing the ten treatments as soon as possible. Laura was great and Dr. Stewart checked in on me at every laser appointment. By the second treatment my swelling and pain were both significantly reduced.
Three weeks later I was boot free and started physical therapy and my ankle is much stronger with no swelling and my broken bone was essentially pain free.
I highly recommend Timonium Foot and Ankle and Dr Stewart. His entire staff was very friendly and every appointment was timely.
