      I had a very bad broken ankle that had to be reset & then surgery with plates & screws. Dr Duncan & his staff were excellent. He explained the surgery to my family & me. He is kind, reassuring & an excellent surgeon. I'm 6 years out from the accident & I can't tell it was ever broken.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
