I sought a second opinion from Dr. Degroot after amputation of my toe had been recommended by another physician. Dr. Degroot has proposed a surgical solution that will not only preserve my toe but enhance my condition. I am hopeful.

Displaced fracture of right Calcaneal (heel bone) in four places from a fall off of a ladder

You might say, well it’s only the heel bone and how bad could that be. As I learned this little bone unlike many in our body that purely provide a structural role also facilitates healthy body balance and mobility. From doing some web research you learn the surgical treatment and recovery outcome even for a less severe fracture case can widely vary based on treatment technique and experience of the orthopedic surgeon selected. Given the number and type fractures of my case the research did not paint an optimistic recovery outcome. The general long term prognoses suggested living with reduced physical mobility and ongoing fluctuating pain. After obtaining several Physician opinions we selected Dr. Henry Degroot, Newton/Wellesley Hospital. I shared my concerns and questions hoping for the best. He was very good at explaining everything in layman's terms describing the injury, the surgical steps to repair it and the recovery time needed to yield a good outcome. Compared to the traditional approach involving a larger L shaped incision to install a metal plate with dozens of screws, Dr. Degroot performed a less invasive procedure, smaller incision involving only 2 pins that eventually are removed and 2 screws that would remain. He stressed a realistic recovery time of a year to return to as close to normal health and activities. It has been 6 months from the accident and I’m pleased to say that I’m walking and doing most of my normal daily activities again. While not yet fully pain or stiffness free the progress to date has been remarkable. In short, I would highly recommend Dr. Degroot. He is a very knowledgeable, experienced and thoughtful orthopedic surgeon who you can trust and feel confident that he will help heal you.

No doubt competent, but full of himself. Unless you need surgery, he's not interested in treating you.

The way it should be

Dr. DeGroot removed a screw from my foot 3 years after it had been placed there during a previous bunion surgery. I was unhappy with my previous surgeon and so did not return to him to have to screw removed. I interviewed 3 other surgeons before meeting Dr. DeGroot, and was not happy with one until I met Dr. DeGroot. He took the time to answer my questions and was very knowledgeable. He had a very cool x-ray machine in his office which displayed my x-ray immediately after he took it so that we could discuss my surgery, He was able to scroll through other x-rays (patient names omitted) on his touch-screen display and to change the orientation so we could compare other bone structures and surgical results to mine. My surgery was quick and straightforward, and the healing was fast and I had very little pain. I was back to normal walking within a week and was working out 10 days post-surgery. I have submitted questions on his website and called his office with questions. Both times they were answered by his assistant after she asked him for his responses.
