After years of living on anti-inflammatory medications for my Achilles tendon injury I finally decided I had enough. I researched my options and on the recommendations of other physicians I chose Dr. Dominic Carreira. Dr. Carreira was pleasant, knowledgeable, and took the time to explain what the surgery would entail. I won’t say the recovery was easy because it was not, but after awhile I started to realize that I was able to do a lot of things I use to do and I wasn’t in pain any more. Since my surgery a year and a half ago I have done some extreme hiking including Mt. Rainier and parts of Colorado. Dr. Carreira is an excellent surgeon and has a positive attitude that makes it easy for his patients to have confidence and trust that they will have a successful outcome.
