I wouldn't recommend this surgeon for Ledderhose Disease (aka plantar fibromatosis). After surgery he placed a cast on my foot that caused pain on the top of my instep (due to constricted circulation, I think). His surgery on my foot resulted in a hematoma and necrosis, which necessitated another surgery (by a different surgeon!) to correct.

Year ago, Dr. Farber performed surgery on my right foot to attempt to repair a cracked bone in my sesamoid. He told me there was a 90% chance surgery would fix the problem, which was causing acute pain. During surgery he severed a nerve in my right foot. My right calf is smaller than my left following years of walking improperly, and the pain has been consistent since I woke up from the surgery. I regret not leaving a review sooner. If I could leave zero stars, I would.

Dr Farber did several surgeries on both my legs stretching tendons and ligaments. And because of him I was able to lead a relatively normal childhood.from the normal children activities to playing sports even into adulthood. I wouldn't trust my legs to any other Dr. I owe that man as much as almost anyone for the person I have become. Former patient of the 70s
