I came to Dr. Brian Weatherford with a comminuted fracture of the navicular metatarsal bone in my left foot . . . and I am so glad I did! I am 23 years old and live an extraordinarily active lifestyle. The prospect of potentially not having a full recovery, and thus not being able to resume my former level of athletics, was a lot to take in. Dr. Weatherford was extremely diligent both in the operating room (4hr+ surgery to put all the pieces together) and in his discussion with me about my options. He was upfront with me about the possibility that I might not make a full recovery with this severe of an injury. He said he would do everything in his power to give me the best chance at living an active lifestyle again. I was given an external fixator for 6 weeks and a post surgical boot for an additional 6 weeks. It has now been around 7 months since my break and I am running, rock climbing, hiking, etc all with minimal pain. I cannot thank you enough Dr. Weatherford!

Dr. Weatherford was extremely understanding and patient with regards to all my questions and concerns about surgery to correct my broken ankle. He took the time to see me both before and after the surgery, never rushing away til he addressed any questions I had. It’s a wonderful thing to find a top notch surgeon who also has a great bedside manor too.
