What People Say About Dr. Thomas Fusco, DPM

I had an ankle replacement He was awesome throughout the 9 months of surgery and healing. He is very friendly and very very knowledge. My scars are so tiny visible. He was very good and telling me about what was going on. Ankle replacement had lots of issues in the past and he did everything to make sure mine replacement should not have any issues. I did exactly what he told me to do. I did not want a fusion as I did not want a non moveble ankle. He has been pleased that I can move almost as good as I was before surgery and still in theraphy, I can not say enough about how good and through he was. I am so pleased with my whole surgery. I had a bad accident that caused me to need surgery. I would do it again even through it is a long healing period which he covered in detail before surgery to make sure I was willing to go through all the down time and work to get back to were I am now. He made me feel like I was his only patient he was so detailed.

Dr. Fusco is excellent. He actually takes the time to truly listen to your questions & concerns. He clearly explains his thought process & recommended course of treatment. He offers alternatives, laying out the pros & cons of each. I am very impressed and recommend him with no reservations. FYI - in spite of it being a very busy office “The trains run on time” which is also a rarity.

Dr. Fusco performed extensive foot reconstruction 4 weeks ago. He was extremely thorough on the procedure as well as what to expect. I have had no issues whatsoever since the operation and am healing very well. He answers any questions I might have and I was happy to hear that I am right where he expected me to be as far as my recovery. I highly recommend him to anyone experiencing foot issues.

After 11 years, I was experiencing severe pain in my previously broken right ankle. (I could bearly walk.) Dr. Fusco told me that my ankle was in dire need of reconstructive surgery. He told me he planned to get my pain level from a 9+ to a 3, on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the worst). After having the surgery at the end of August, 2018, I now have zero pain! I highly recommend Dr. Fusco... he knows what he's doing! (Thank you Dr. Fusco!)

My first visit with Dr. Fusco was on February 24th 2017 and I have continued to see him every 3 to 5 months over the past 2 years and 2 months. When I first visited I was unable to walk without pain due to my debilitating arthritis. I had no cartilage left in my right ankle and my left ankle was almost as bad. Over the course of two years, Dr. Fusco performed an arthrodesis (fusion) on my right ankle and an implant arthroplasty (artificial ankle joint) on my left ankle. I am now essentially pain free when I walk. I still have some physical therapy to do but I can see the end of the process. I thought I was doomed to a future of sitting around the house in pain like so many other 75 year old arthritic guys, but instead Dr. Fusco has skillfully returned my mobility. And it doesn't hurt to walk to the mail box any more. Finally, I'd like to say that he is also one of the nicest guys you'll likely ever meet.

Dr. Fusco is very kind, compassionate, caring and has a sense of humor which is helpful when seeing doctors. He was always available for questions and I'm very thankful I am no longer in pain. His office staff is also wonderful helped me expedite my clearance for surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Fusco and his staff.

Pain in my foot is what sent me to Dr. Thomas A. Fusco, D.P.M at Orthopaedic Associates at 1035 Mar Walt Drive in Fort Walton Beach, FL. He was able to find the source of the pain and relieve the symptoms in two appointments. I am aware the problem will return but will definitely go back to see Dr. Fusco when it does. I highly recommend him.
