Regina O, Pompano Beach, FL

Dear Dr. Carreira, An arthritic ankle so severely inflamed to the point of immobility sent me to an Orthopedic surgeon who recommended replacement or an ankle joint fusion. I wanted a 2nd opinion and found Dr. Carreira who suggested I keep my ankle elevated, using a lift or higher heels, avoid beach walking and impact exercise, or if necessary a steroid injection. It has been 6 years since my 1st visit with Dr. Carreira and following his advice with only 1 steroid injection after activity overuse. I am pleased to have found Dr. Carreira who directed me on a path to managing my ankle condition with no surgery or chronic pain. Thank you Dr. Carreira!   Regina O. Pompano Beach Fl.
