Dr. Brarens' Care Philosophy

Dr. Brarens Personal Statement: "I have the rare privilege of loving what I do. Through my training and interest in advancing both my knowledge and medical/technical abilities I am able to provide accurate diagnoses and treatments for my patients providing them life changing relief. From the repair of a severe trauma of the foot and ankle or debilitating sports injuries, to the correction of chronic or congenital deformities of the lower extremity in adults and in children, to more everyday treatments of plantar fasciitis and ingrown toe nails; the joy I receive by providing relief to my patients is rewarding and makes every day fulfilling."
