Dr. Redkar Yelp Patient Review, in her own words...

The following five-star Yelp review was posted by University Foot and Ankle patient, Takashi.

5 Star Yelp review, University Foot and Ankle Institute

In March of 2017, I ruptured my left Achilles tendon while playing sports. My orthopedic surgeon at the time gave me basically only one option, open surgery.

 

I did some research and discovered there was another option, PARS (percutaneous Achilles repair system). This type of surgery was less invasive and the recovery time was much faster. My orthopedist did not offer this, he only offered open surgery. University Foot & Ankle was the name that always came up while researching PARS.

 

I scheduled an appointment and met with Dr. Redkar. Dr. Redkar was warming and attentive from the first encounter. She gave me 2 options, non-operative which requires months of casting or surgery with the PARS technique. Of course, I opted for the PARS surgery technique.

 

During my whole experience, from office visits to surgery then follow-ups, Dr. Redkar, and the office staffs were incredible. I'm on my way back to normal now, and I owe it all to Dr. Redkar. Thank you so much.
