Absolutely the best foot and ankle surgeon in or around Chicago (trust me, I've seen them all). He fixed what 3 other surgeons misdiagnosed and butchered in surgery. He is incredible. He is caring and compassionate. Treats you like family. Worth waiting for and the drive if you're not near his office. You could find someone closer or that's not as busy and gets you in quicker but then you'd be sacrificing quality.

I saw Dr. Garras for pain in my big toe. I thought there was something out of whack with my foot. Dr. Garras diagnosed the problem as muscle tightness in my legs, which was causing the foot pain. He sent me to PT, and after that I saw a masseuse who performed incredibly painful massages to loosen the fascia from my muscles. The recovery took months, but the pain is completely gone. Dr. Garras correctly diagnosed the problem. He is also very friendly and professional.
Dr. Garras is GREAT. He informed me of all pre-op and post-op procedures. My surgery was excellent and the ease of seeing him for follow up visits are terrific.

Dr. Garras performed an Achilles debridement and FHL tendon transfer on my foot in 10/2015. I was very pleased with Dr. Garras' skills as a surgeon. He was also genuinely concerned about me as a patient. I am now 12 weeks out from surgery; I am walking well, my pain is minimal, and with PT, I plan to slowly start back running in the next few weeks. I was also very impressed with his Physician's Assistant, Christa, who helped me several times with followup questions.
