Achilles Tendon Rupture Treatment - Kenneth DeFontes, III, M.D

5 5 1
Had Achilles tendon surgery for a full rupture. He diagnosed me in my first appointment and preformed the surgery. 2 weeks post op feeling really good and all is going well with the exception of me being bummed about driving. Dr. DeFontes didnt rush through the visit and always gave me the option of a non surgical approach explaining the pros and cons to both options. Surgery was the better option but he is a great doc highly recommend.

Orthopedic Care - Dr. DeFontes

5 5 1
Towson orthopedics is the place to go. The staff is genuinely caring, helpful and take the time to make sure you are ok and understand the steps in treatment/recovery. I have already recommended the business as well as the physicians i have personally dealt with, I wouldn't want to see anyone go anywhere else for the care they need.
