Lower extremity reconstruction is intended to restore function and aesthetics of patients’ lower limbs. The bones, ligaments and tendons of ankles and feet support the weight of the entire body, and Dr. Mitchell will perform a personalized procedure for patients experiencing foot and ankle disorders or other ailments.
Procedure length and recovery varies, since each surgery is unique and personalized. Dr. Mitchell will work with patients throughout recovery, ensuring a smooth transition back to full function.
No matter how much independent reading you do you cannot expect to truly be ‘ready’ for the process involved following a double mastectomy with reconstruction. Dr. Mitchell presents information in a clear way and in a way that is unique to you. His demeanor is a quiet one, but I always felt he was concerned and attentive to my situation. My experience, like most, doesn’t follow a completely predictable pathway. Dr. Mitchell has the experience and a calm deliberate practice that is reassuring when all else seems chaotic.
