Please help me find the best orthopedic surgeon
in the country. My brother needs reconstructive surgery on his foot to correct a botched operation, and we will go anywhere in the U.S. to get the best care for him.

Two years ago, my 15-year-old brother had a surgical procedure to correct a tarsal coalition. The surgery was unsuccessful and he had another surgery last year in an attempt to correct the first procedure by removing a large screw that was placed in his foot. Too much bone was removed from his foot during the first operation and now the bone needs to be replaced (from what I understand.) He is still in pain and has difficulty standing and walking, and our orthopedic surgeon here in Florida is recommending that we find a reconstructive surgeon for him. We will travel anywhere in the country if we can find a doctor who can perform the necessary operation and relieve him of his pain.
