“I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 28 years ago. Because of the Rheumatoid Arthritis, I have issues with my feet.

With the new biologic medicines I have been able to regain an active lifestyle. My exercise of choice is cycling. The issues with my feet were very painful and was affecting my cycling. I decided to have a very large bunion removed this past January.

I was nervous about the surgery because I had developed an infection after thumb surgery several years ago and had to be hospitalized. I discussed my concerns with Dr. Stewart. I was pleased to find out that Dr. Stewart contacted my rheumatologist and the two of them worked together to manage my medicines, so I could have a safe and speedy recovery.

I listened to Dr. Stewart and took my recovery at a slow pace. He would gradually allow me to add on to my activities. Exactly 4 months, after my surgery, I completed a 100 mile bicycle ride….PAIN FREE!

Dr. Stewart and his staff are the best!!!!”
