I was recommended to Dr. Buchanan, who implanted a 3D printed, next generation artificial ankle. I'm still in recovery, but have already seen that I will have close to a full range of motion. I am amazed, thrilled, and highly recommend Dr. Buchanan. I am looking forward to resuming my life with my usual gusto. Thank you, Dr. Buchanan.
Thank you for the review, Linda.

Dr. Buchanan performed ankle replacement surgery on my left ankle. We were from out of town as because nobody in Bowling Green, KY did this type of surgery. Every aspect from initial contact to post op care has been superb. Everything has progressed better than I expected. Couldn't be happier. I had surgery 20 days ago.
Thank you for the review, Juan.

Dr. Buchanan has been a blessing to our family. He has taken the time to not only explain the problem that my husband was facing with his injury, he took the time to teach us the things that we would need to be able to do to speed the healing process. It is rare to find doctors who can achieve the balance of staying on schedule while still spending the necessary time to make sure his patients feel secure in the care that they are getting. So glad to have him in Chattanooga!!!!!
Thank you for the review, Kim.

Long wait. Seemed in a rush. Did not show me or explain X-rays taken of broken foot. Did not offer a smaller boot like my new doctor did. Dr. Buchanan later refused to write a script for pain management of a broken bone. I had to go to my family doctor for pain relief and then follow up with a different podiatrist. My new doctor is wonderful and she explained everything in detail, gave me a more comfortable boot, and made sure pain was under control.
