My son is an elite high school basketball player and broke his navicular bone last December while playing. We interviewed three board-certified surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle surgery. We picked Dr. Carreira because of his knowledge and emphasis on sports related injuries. He has an excellent bedside manner as well. He was also recommended by one of the surgeons that we saw because he was the best in the area. Dr. Carreira performed successful surgery on his navicular bone and got him back on track. My son is 100% healthy in time for his senior year of high school basketball season. We thank Dr. Carreira for his expert surgical work and his emphasis in working with athletes and getting them back to their sport as quickly as possible. We recommend Dr. Carreira to anyone and we actually have.
