“In the spring of 2012, I went on vacation to both Disney World and the Grand Canyons and after these trips I had severe pain and difficulty walking in my right foot and ankle. Prior to my injury, I was playing tennis 3 days per week, yet after developing my condition I was unable to play tennis.

I decided to seek treatment at the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center under the care of Dr. Stewart. Dr. Stewart diagnosed me with a painful flatfoot and posterior tibial tendinitis.

My experience with my treatment at the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center has been very rewarding. I was referred to physical therapy and provided steroid injections and bracing and Dr. Stewart emphasized of my compliance. He even got me to stop wearing worn down shoes, which I didn’t realize was contributing to my problem.

I listened to all of his recommendations and Dr. Stewart has successfully got me back on the tennis court and I have been able to return to my volunteer position at the Maryland Zoo as a docent. He fitted for a custom brace that supports my ankle and allows me to be as active as I want.

I am especially appreciative of the conservative approach he has taken in restoring my foot to full function and happy that I was able to avoid surgery. I continue to do my exercises on a routine basis.

Thank you for your care Dr. Stewart”
