Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Byrnes "I treat patients same as family. I would not perform surgery on a patient that I would not perform on my family.

I try to avoid surgery which can not be reversed down the line.

If you don't want surgery, we can get you relief with shoe alteration so bring in your shoes"
