Dear Dr. Mathews, It has been just over two months since my foot surgery to remove the bone spurs on my right foot. Not only has my foot healed very well and most of the swelling is gone, I am walking very well. I am still wearing only runners and flat shoes (as you said to do), and I work and flex my toes everyday. I have regained most of the mobility in my foot. There is still room for more mobility-but it will get there. Thank you for your tremendous expertise, and patience with me as I worried about the procedure. You paused and reassured me of the surgery itself and expected outcomes. My final note is to say thank you to your staff, Priya and Jean, both of which are kind, thoughtful, and professional. Best regards, Lynn Joly
It's been almost 5 months and I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with how smoothly my bunion surgery and recovery went! I'm not experiencing the pain I had at night before the surgery, was back in my regular shoes at 3 months and the scar is so faint it can hardly be seen. Thanks again!
Thanks, Dr Mathews, for fixing my 'pancake feet' so that I can keep doing what I love!
“Thank you Dr. Mathews for making time for my foot injury and devising a super thin and lightweight orthotic for my track spikes. I competed in the Heptathlon – 7 events and I had a fun weekend, but the best part of National Championships in Sherbrooke QC was winning gold. I came from behind, in 3rd place after 6 events to run the best 800m race of my life and clinch the National Championship. I have more rehab to do on my foot, that’s for sure, but without the right support in my shoe I couldn’t have competed at all. Thank you so much for fitting me into your busy schedule on your first day back from vacation.”
“I did not think it was even possible to find treatment to end the excruciating pain I would experience every day from having a bunion. Then one day it happened…a simple procedure that lasted a few hours and I was on my way to being rid of the bunion pain forever. That day was eleven years ago. It changed my life. It is possible to end the pain. For the people who had the kind of pain I had…I hope they are able to find you and get the result I did.”
You told us one day it would get better and we wouldn’t be visiting your office.Life is now where you said it would be. Courtney wears any shoe she likes .... I also can’t tell you how happy as a parent I am with your technique, as her scar is almost invisible.
Dear Dr. Mathews,Today is a very happy day for me. I did a 15min warm up walk then a 2min run/2min walk X 4. I had no discomfort whatsoever amd felt like I could have done more. Will continue with caution every other day! Thank you!
After being referred to Dr. Mathews, my foot problems have completely subsided, allowing me to continue to play soccer without pain. Anyone who has or has had any foot ailments should definately see what Dr. Mathews has to offer.
