Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Easley "I enjoy the challenge of helping patients with foot and ankle problems including arthritis tendon disorders or ruptures and sports injuries. While my focus is my clinical practice I keep my orthopaedic knowledge current by regularly participating as faculty in national and international orthopaedic foot and ankle conferences conferences that frequently prompt me to bring advances to help the patients in my practice. I also continue to study many of the problems through dedicated foot and ankle research and share my clinical surgical and research experience with national and international colleagues the surgeons who attend the meetings and the residents and fellows that I train each year."
