"In my youth I played lots of sports. I also wore pointy-toed shoes. When I found out I had arthritis I stopped playing tennis but continued to walk daily and exercise at least three times a week. But the shoes and sports gave me bunions and hammertoes that got progressively more painful. I asked Dr. Ollivierre, who performed my knee surgery, who he'd send his mother to if she needed a podiatrist and he said Dr. Watkins. I liked Dr. Watkins right away. He removed my bunions and fixed my hammertoes with implants. Now I can do everything, including sports, without pain."

"Foot pain can be debilitating and lead to inactivity, which causes many other health problems. Too many people like Jean suffer unnecessarily, because foot pain can be managed, even eliminated."
