Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gokcen "My clinical practice is focused on foot and ankle conditions. I am interested in treating common pathologies, such as bunions and hammertoes, but also the more complex conditions, such as total ankle replacement, arthroscopy, and complex foot and ankle reconstructions. In addition, foot and ankle conditions can frequently be treated without surgery, and I am a strong believer in maximizing non-operative treatment before turning to surgery."
