Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Adams Jr "People come to see me for all kinds of conditions. Thats one of the reasons I went into foot and ankle surgery. I can treat children and adults. I do deformity corrections treat arthritis trauma and nerve disorders. A whole gamut of things. When it comes to treating patients I try to exhaust all the non-surgical options first because surgery can really intrude on someones lifestyle. Duke has outstanding world-class physicians. We have the support of outstanding research to help us make our treatment decisions. My passion is being able to reconstruct somebodys foot when they cant currently walk on it and allowing them to walk again. One patient story that stands out in my mind is of a woman who was involved in a car accident and broke her leg and several of the bones in her foot and who lost some of those bones at the scene of the accident. She had seen several other providers and they recommended amputation. When I saw her I decided she would be a candidate for the new 3D printed technology and I was able to do a 3D bone implant and now shes walking again. We were able to save her leg."
