Learn about Dr. Faro

Care Philosophy

"I enjoy helping patients to understand the mechanics of their bodies. I believe that all healing begins with this education and understanding, whether the cure involves surgery or conservative treatment. I was drawn to the area of foot and ankle surgery because sound feet really are the foundation of good health. My goal is to educate patients about their options and together choose a treatment plan that fits their life and goals."

Patient Reviews (2)
in Englewood, CO |
I saw Dr. Faro to get a 2nd opinion on my Achilles injury. She is very smart, practical and not willing to jump into surgery as a first option. I liked her conservative approach. When all else did not work (boot, acupuncture, PT), I had repair surgery. She was excellent. Her level of skill, expertise, care and concern was amazing, as was the follow up care I received.
Denver, CO |
I was born with club foot and after 6 years of looking for a surgeon to help me Dr. Faro, was able to give me a triple arthrodesis. This will make my life so much easier and pain free. I am now proud of my scars and the progress I have made because of her.
