“We have everything a patient would need to get better.”
Foot, ankle, and heel conditions can cause people problems in their everyday lives. When those conditions become severe, they may need surgery to get better.
That’s where MaCalus V. Hogan, MD, and UPMC Orthopaedic Care come in. They provide patients with the best possible care for foot, ankle, or heel conditions.
“I tell my patients often in orthopaedics you don’t want to be an interesting case, but if you are, you want to get your care right here,” says Dr. Hogan, chair, Orthopaedic Surgery and chief, Foot and Ankle Surgery, UPMC.
Dr. Hogan and his fellow experts use state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Rehabilitation also is part of the care plan to help patients get back on their feet. “UPMC has a comprehensive care delivery model across the entire treatment span, around prehabilitation, all the way through rehab,” he says. “We have everything a patient would need to get better.”
The goal is to find a solution for patients – whether they’re high-level athletes or not – and to make sure that solution works.
“With foot and ankle surgery, the goal is really to get people back moving,” Dr. Hogan says. “And most importantly, I want to get you back permanently, not just once, and then all of a sudden you’re injured again.”
