I have already recommended Dr. McGuigan to a colleague! He was knowledgeable, patient, and due to his conservative and practical approach, saved me a lot of time, money and pain. He was able to spot subtleties in my injury that other doctors at Georgetown did not notice or mention, allowing me to make an informed decision about my care. Many thanks to him and his staff!

I needed a 2nd opinion to remove a painful neuroma surgically. I expected Dr. McGuigan to concur with my podiatrist. He looked, said I did not need surgery and left the room, returning with a pad placed behind the neuroma. This pad was going to override surgery? Nah! He was quite confident this pad would do the trick. So I put the pad onto the sole of my sneaker, put it on and was, and still am, incredulous. To accompany his expertise is a congenial doctor, qualities we seek but rarely find

Dr McGuigan did my 3rd surgery on my right great toe. My first 2 surgeries were not so successful (Dr McGuigan did NOT do my first 2 surgeries) but my 3rd was a total success and I owe all to him. I would highly recommend Dr McGuigan.

My experience with Dr McGuigan was excellent and him and his staff was always very respectful and professional. I have been telling my family and friends about him and letting them know that if they need some type of knee, hip or foot surgery to go and see him.
in Charlotte Hall, MD |
Dr. McGuigan has operated on both my knees and ankle. He fixed me all three times.The ankle was complicated and I suffered for years.I now walk normal.The pain is gone and I cannot be happier. He also worked on my husband and we recommend him to everyone. Dr. McGuigan listened to me, answered all my questions and showed me pictures of what he was going to do in detail. I did everything he told me to do and got 100% results. I trust him so I am not afraid of surgery.

This doctor not only care for is profession but most important for his patients. He listens to you and your worries about the surgery and explain to you what is going to happen good or bad but in a way that you can trust him. Very caring and loving person. I love him as a super Doctor.
Rockville, MD |
Had a specific plan for surgical intervention on my ankle which made sense to me, spent considerable time outlining the plan for me. Prior orthopedist had said he would decide during surgery what to do and could not be specific about recommendations. Also it helped that my ankle healed this timea fter surgery
in Oxon Hill, MD |
Dr. McGuigan is an excellent doctor with a lot of patience. He performed surgery on my right knee and I've had great results. I've had a positive experience and I highly recommended Dr. McGuigan.

Dr. McGuigan did extensive repair on my achilles (Haglund's deformity) and it was a total success. The pain and disability I lived with for 10 years is mostly gone. Everything went smoothly - including a visit to the hospital to review the incision & get a cast in the wake of the biggest snowstorm we had in nearly a century. I am looking forward to returning now to playing squash.
Annapolis, MD |
Excellent physician! I have been seeing Dr McGuigan for 8 years and he has always been professional, informative, and personable. Dr McGuigan did a bilateral total knee replacement in 2008 and in 2016 my knees are still going strong. Dr McGuigan performed reconstructive foot surgery to correct a collapsed arch with an over pronated foot (resulting from my previously bad knees) in 2014 and I'm very happy with the results. Dr McGuigan is thorough, detailed and highly skilled. Highly recommended!
in Brookeville, MD |
Great surgeon. Excellent surgical skills, and the entire team at the GUH foot and ankle center are the best anywhere.
in Washington, DC |
Dr. McGuigan performed ankle replacement surgery to stabilize an ankle that had been sprained badly. I feel confident in his advice. He is not quick to recommend surgery unless he believes its benefits will outweigh the risks and is confident of an excellent result. He told me that he could take my ankle back to where it was before my injury. He did. I am still healing, but well on my way to full activity. He is kind, friendly, easygoing, and takes time with his patients. Highly recommend.
in Olney, MD |
Dr. McGuigan was very professional, kind and compassionate and did a great job at repairing the split tendon in my foot. I have full confidence in him and his team and he's the one to go to for foot and/or ankle surgery!
