Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levine "My orthopedic practice is focused in conditions of the foot and ankle.  We endeavor every day to try and manage people well at the early onset of their trauma.  We encourage patients to participate in their care and work aggressively in physical therapy to improve range of motion.  Achieving a greater range of motion means less pressure in the process of walking and participating in activities of daily living or light recreation.  We see a fair number of traumatic conditions, but also a great deal of non-traumatic, or chronic, conditions such as bunions, flat feet, and tendon problems. 

 

Seeing a patient walking in and getting a sense that their life has been restored is really the greatest privilege.  To make such tremendous effects on patients' lives on a daily basis and put their lives back together for them is an honor and what we strive for each day."

Patient Comments (1)
in Indianapolis, IN |
This physician refuses to speak to physicians when they want to refer patients. His staff gives you the run around and lies and says that they will have the doctor call their primary care doctor when he has no interest in doing so. He obviously only cares about the money and not patients.
