I had surgery 7/24. Saw Dr. Krauss today for my 3 follow up visit. I had my foot fused, and a bunion removed. Extremely painful at first, but I am following Dr.'s orders and all,is well. This man,has incredible surgical skills. I need work on my other foot, and Dr. Krauss will be my surgeon. Honest, trustworthy, dedicated staff. MUCH prefer the Grandview office to the one south.

Great! He “unscrewed” what had become four surgeries attempting open reduction of broken bone in foot (that surgeon had done a great job on an ACL graft and prosthetic hip placement for me). Krause removed a metal plate and eight screws; placed four screws and called it a bone fusion. Previous surgeries had basically mangled foot function. Krause did an excellent job.

At my last post op surgery appointment I was told by dr Krauss that everything looked fine when that was clearly not the case my foot and leg was swollen beyond belief and I was dismissed with no recommendation as to what I should do. It has been almost three months since my surgery and still so much swelling that I cannot wear anything but flip flops Also I cannot bend my toes and my foot looks deformed.
