“I recently had multiple surgical procedures by Dr. Jordan Stewart of the Timonium Foot and Ankle Center.
My bunion and 2nd digit hammertoe on my right foot has plagued me for years and the pain has grown worse over time. I knew that it was time to do something surgical to relieve my pain.
I had seen to two previous Podiatrists who both recommended surgery, but for a variety of reasons, I did not feel comfortable with either one of these doctors. When I first met Dr. Stewart and his team, I quickly realized that it was time to stop procrastinating and finally get my foot pain taken care of once and for all.
This was the first surgery I ever had in my life and as a result I was very nervous and hesitant to even schedule the surgery. I probably drove Dr. Stewart and his team crazy for a while before finally scheduling my surgery.
The day of my surgery, September 12, 2013, came and I was so nervous that I joked with my wife about going to lunch instead, but I ultimately reported to the Timonium Surgery Center for my procedures. During the several hour procedures, Dr. Stewart performed an opening wedge osteotomy with a plate and screws to my 1st metatarsal, a bunionectomy, a fusion of my 2nd toe, an osteotomy with screw to my 2nd metatarsal, and a gastrocnemius recession to release the tight muscle in my calf. Everything in the surgery went smooth and I then started the recovery process.
Dr. Stewart warned me that recovery would be lengthy and managing the pain and swelling and getting healed properly were the top priorities. After a short period of time, my pain was under good control and I remained non-weightbearing for 8-weeks while my bones healed.
By mid-November, I started physical therapy and began walking and driving. After a small additional surgery in mid-December to remove a screw and remove some scar tissue that I developed, I was feeling ready to return to work in a limited fashion. Dr. Stewart was very in tune with the relationship between my job requirements and the required work limitations. I can’t emphasize how much I appreciated this when returning to work in the corporate world after a lengthy absence.
Throughout my entire experience, Dr. Stewart and his staff were very accommodating to my family, and me taking care of all of my needs including to my recovery as well as my short-term disability claim. I would recommend Dr. Stewart and his team to anyone in need of Podiatric (Foot and/or Ankle) care. He will give you a realistic appraisal of your situation, the proper course of treatment, and a great result.
Thank you Dr. Stewart and your wonderful team.”
