I have been seeing Dr. Heier since 2010. He was the only orthopedic physician and surgeon that accurately diagnosed my foot condition. He had to basically rebuild my foot 2 different times (once in 2010 and the other time 2013) and it is finally normal now. I have had 2 other minor foot surgeries since then to shave bone off the bottom of my foot and he did a great job. His bedside manner is wonderful; he is caring; listens to you and tells you exactly what the problem is and how it needs to be fixed. I trust him 100%. His PA, Jodie, is great too. I live in Houston now and still drive to Carrollton to see him when I am having foot issues. I will not let anyone else go near my foot. I highly recommend him....
I did not learn that Dr. Heier taught all over the world on total ankle replacements. i figured those guys were not accessible, but he is. I broke my ankle in a motorcycle crash when I was 18, that turned into a long term nightmare. By the time I was 28, I lost almost all of the muscle and was walking with a steady limp. He spent over 1 hour with me in my initial consultation and we discussed a long term plan. It was not until the very end that we decided on total ankle replacement. It has been 6 months since surgery and my life is back! I love this man, and I am stronger than ever and now working on muscles I could never get to so I can fix my posture.
First of all the total ankle replacement surgery was an incredible relief for me. I had bone on bone arthritis at 65 from an old college injury and had no ankle mobility, severe pain, and could only walk with a bad limp and and a cane. Full post surgery recuperation with rehabilitation therapy took no more than the 3 months Dr Heier indicated. I was actually back in my office half days in about 3 weeks. The pain relief from the joint was immediately noticeable, but there was residual pain from the incision from the incision which was well controlled with proper pain medication. This is a serious, major surgery, so it was no walk in the park at first but the Doctor and his staff and his therapist got me up and moving and flexible and pain free in a very reasonable time. I now have more mobility in my ankle than I have had since my old accident. Dr. Heier was very communicative and responsive throughout the process. I would use him again in a heartbeat, of course I hope I don't need to.
