Dr. Hegewald's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hegewald "I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. After completing my medical school in Iowa, I returned to Seattle area for my foot and ankle surgical residency with Franciscan Health System. Following residency, I went on to complete the Silicon Valley Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Fellowship with Palo Alto Medical Foundation. My fellowship focused on total ankle replacement, trauma and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. I have been in the Columbia Gorge with Cascade Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Center for about 2 years now. I enjoy every minute here and hope to help as many as I can in the Gorge. "

I came to Cascade Orthopedics in Nov 2016 with ankle issues from repetitive injuries. I was very apprehensive and fearful about having surgery. Dr. Hegewald took his time to explain all my options including non surgery options. He was very adamant that surgery in my case would make life more...more

Dr. Hegewald is in way too much of a hurry. I had an appointment with him in November 2017 for foot pain. He said we'd look at my X-rays. We didn't. He said he'd trim my chronic corn. He didn't. All he did was go get a pair of insoles ($40), put a metatarsal pad on one insole, and send me out...more

I deeply apologize for your experience. There are many patients daily that must be seen for emergency fractures and urgent issues, putting strain on the schedule and staff while spreading my services thin at times. I try and dedicate as much time as I reasonably can to help all those I can. I'm happy to review your x rays and trim your corn at no charge. Please discuss with our billing department if you feel you have been wrongly charged so we can resolve the issue. Sincerely- Dr. Hegewald.
