My torn posterior tibial tendon required complicated ankle and foot surgery with tendon transplant for the ability to walk again. Dr. Tacconelli, my favorite orthopedist, sent me to Dr. Pearson. This operation is a big deal, with a long recovery requiring much patience. I am pleased to say that the outcome is a fully functional and pain-free ankle, with very little scarring. I respect Dr. Pearson's understanding of foot and ankle mechanics, and strongly recommend him for ankle surgery.

My family and I have been patients for several years. The staff got me in immediately during a very busy time avoiding an overcrowded ER at hospital. I have been treated twice for broken bones over the years where Dr. Pearson did the repair procedure and got me the needed physical therapy to return to work at 100%. His work and office equipment is state-of-the art and he is on top of all the latest advances in his field.
