Patient Comments (1)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Tindall repaired an injury on my right foot. The surgery was very similar to bunion surgery. He told me he would remove 4 bone spurs. Now the big toe is crooked. I can't touch the floor with my toe. He only removed 2 bone spurs. I still get shooting pains in the foot. My toe is shorter than before and shorter than the one next to it. I can't use my big toe for balance and so the other toes have become misshapen trying to steady the foot. He wanted to cut the tendon to fix the problem.
