|Do I need an orthopedic to check my hip, knee, ankle or foot?
If you have experienced pain or you notice that sports, workouts or even daily activities cause you to be sore or stiff, you should get yourself checked. Dr. DeGroot would be happy to answer any questions you might have about your orthopedic health.
Should I see an orthopedic surgeon for my foot and ankle care?
Orthopedic surgeons have the most extensive training program of all health providers who treat the foot and ankle. Only an orthopedic surgeon can evaluate the entire situation in your foot, leg, hip and back and treat all of your orthopedic concerns.
What should I expect from my orthopedic surgeon?
You should expect your orthopedic surgeon to take the time to listen to your concerns. The doctor should provide you all the information you need to choose the best treatment. Also, your orthopedic surgeon should be Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Can Dr. DeGroot provide these things for me?
We hope we can combine a friendly, unhurried, personal approach to care, while still providing surgical and non-surgical treatments based on training and experience at the world's finest institutions of orthopedic learning. Dr. DeGroot is fully certified by the ABOS.
