Dr.Ellis reconstructed my son's crushed ankle (sports) in a 2-step operation years ago; his ankle is absolutely perfect! The outside scar is very thin, meticulous-never seen anything like it! Can't thank him enough for his expertise! And staff too :) xo

Top surgeon with great bedside manners. Going in for another flatfoot surgery in October. The results on my first one are great, I can walk 3 miles, play golf, etc. Again, communication is the key, and Dr.Ellis and his team, especially Steve and Carlos are always reachable, and respond ASAP to your questions.

I ruptured my Achilles tendon playing basketball. After seeing Dr. Ellis shortly after calling for an appointment I knew I was in great hands and had selected the right doctor. Dr. Ellis is extremely knowledgeable but is also easy to talk with and listens to your questions and concerns. His staff is also very competent and cares about you. I had surgery five weeks ago and I have been very happy with my recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellis if you experience an Achilles rupture

Can't sing enough praises for Dr. Ellis. 4 short weeks ago, Dr. Ellis performed a total replacement of my right ankle. I'm already weight-bearing and walking with the assistance of a walker. Dr. Ellis was spot-on when he told me what to expect. My experience with him has been fantastic. I would recommend Dr Ellis to anyone having ankle issues.

Dr. Ellis is the best. He just performed ankle surgery on me in November 2015. 6 months later I am back in the game! I highly recommend Dr. Ellis to anyone who wants to stay mobile and active!
