Had complete achilles rupture playing tennis several years back and having ongoing complications. Looking for orthopedic surgeon in Springfield, Missouri area for followup. Current one retired. Only want MD with extensive experience and well know for this specialty treatment. How do you find one? Talking around has not produced results.
Both sites have a listing of orthopaedic surgeons according to city and states, this would zero in on your area. As far as their experience, reputation, and background...you may have to do more research.
Footcaremd.com is a website maintained by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society - an its members are generally orthopaedic surgeons who have an interest in foot and ankle surgery.
Hope this helps.
