Foot Surgery reviews in Mclean

  • A
    Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center
    I love this practice because of Dr. Cuttica and his staff.   They take their work, seriously, but are personable at the same time.  Be prepared to spend an hour or so on your first appointment because he needs time to review your completed forms and x-rays.   Subsequent visits are within 10-15 minutes wait time but you never know how busy they get due to multiple unexpected ankle issues (think the day after soccer games or rowdy concerts).   Otherwise, expect nothing but sound, knowledgeable, and skillful treatment. 
    Some good phone numbers to keep available are as follows:
    Orthopedic Sport (to rent a scooter for approximately $40.00 per week and they deliver for $25.00) - much easier to use than crutches:    703/ 263-1325
    Request the completed form for a Handicap Tag (for Handicap Parking) from the Orthopedics and get the tag from DMV asap.
    If any hardware is used (i.e., screws, plates, etc.) ask for the card (at the front desk) that validates you will set-off metal detectors.  It helps to present it when going through Security check-points (e.g., airports).
    Phone Number to purchase an Aircast ice machine (get the motorized one and make sure you have adequate ice):    703/ 584-2040
    Family Pharmacy located in McLean, VA off Chain Bridge Road - offers free delivery:  703/ 854-1992
    Ensure that you have plenty of pillows and a comforter so you can elevate your leg, foot, and ankle.
    Input pertinent phone numbers into your cell phone ahead of time because getting around and carrying papers can be challenging.
    A clear oversized baggie is good, also, for papers, pens, and safety pins (just in case).
    The current contact information on this practice's website is for a store located in New England instead of the small store located inside the practice.  You can get the local store's phone number by asking the person behind the counter for i I recommend getting the plastic bag for your foot, ankle, leg for the shower and possibly one of the socks.  The sock is useful because I believe it is large enough to cover a cast and looks better with the boot.  I did not buy one and regretted it because I wanted to cover my toes and a regular-sized sock was tight against the skin and incision and I ended-up losing the other one (of the pair).
     
    This practice's phone number (703/ 769-8420) has an option to leave a message for a Nurse.  I have contacted them two or three times and have received generic responses from the nurses.  If you have any discomfort (e.g., your foot and ankle swelling and rubs against your cast), do not hesitate to be persistent in getting assistance.  I believe this service acts as a first-line, common problems service not intended for more severe ones so make sure you get what you need because the practice opens around 9AM, takes an hour lunch, and then does not guarantee a response for any messages left after 3PM.   I believe this is to keep the overhead down.
    I have approximately another month of treatment (one for x-rays to confirm that healing has occurred so I can resume walking on it and then a few weeks of physical therapy twice a week).  I also love the fact that the practice does not pressure or try to sell you on their physical therapy practice though I did go through theirs for mine.

    Cuttica, Dr. Daniel J.
    Dr. Cuttica explained to my parents (at the hospital) what he would be doing during the surgery and what to expect afterwards. He met with me and explained the importance of taking the pain killers before the leg blocks wore-off after the surgery. The instruction was to and quot;stay ahead of the pain killers wearing offand quot; (which I did for about four days and then took a pain killer only when experiencing discomfort, normally at night and mainly for my knees because my right side had to support all my weight during recovery because I was not allowed to have any weight on my left side so my right knee was causing pain). Otherwise, I had zero pain. I eventually went to a cast (as prescribed) and the physician's assistant, Lauren, cautiously and carefully set it. It was the best-looking cast I've ever seen. -About two weeks into the cast I started experiencing my ankle and foot rubbing against it (believe the ligaments and cartilage were being repaired and growing). I could have gone in to get the cast removed but decided to just wait a few days for my appointment. I did leave a message for the Nurse at the Orthopedic Center letting her know I was in pain due to my foot and ankle rubbing against the cast. I could have been more assertive and had the cast removed but decided it was bearable for another day or so. The Center has an option to speak with a nurse (which I did a couple times), and I recommend that you push if you need something because you may get a generic answer so don't wait and push your issue if you need something (Janelle and Stephanie are awesome). I finally met the period to get the cast removed and Jumana (one of Dr. Cuttica's medical assistants) did this exceptionally carefully and patiently. She made me feel at ease during this whole process.
    I am now approximately 10 days before meeting with Dr. Cuttica to get cleared for bearing weight on my left leg and ankle. I am to get physical therapy twice a week for a few weeks, too. Kevin (in Billing has helped me understand my balance) and he and Stephanie are most responsive when I call and leave a message on their answering machine.
    Bottom-Line: Dr. Cuttica is the best ankle doctor and surgeon ever. He is passionate about his work, profession, and patients, LISTENS (attentively) to you, and has unparalleled bedside manner. He is super approachable, personable, and genuinely cares about his patients. He is professional, knowledgeable, and skillful as are his assistants. He is a stellar and exceptional doctor and I highly recommend and endorse him, particularly for children and those fearful of surgery. He is not intimidating and is not arrogant. He is the kind of guy you'd see at a baseball game who can jump into action during an emergency. He is knowledgeable about foot and ankle care (possibly leg, too) and have seen he gave a talk about taking care of your feet and ankles for marathons.

    Just make sure you bring work, book, cell phone, or something that will keep you occupied while waiting about one hour on your first appointment. All subsequent appointments (for me, at least) the wait time has been between 10-15 minutes. Also, make sure you get the phone number and business card for the small store inside the Center because the current website shows information for a store in New England that is mail order only. Hopefully they change this to reflect theirs, soon.

    Cashman III, Dr. Justin L.
    Dr. Cashman was inept in every way - from failing to order/read MRI reports, lost records, totally uncaring & arrogant.  I ended up with over 30 major procedures & lost much of my foot.  Sent to Georgetown hospital to save leg.

    Dr. Cameron Phipps
    This is one of the very best doctors I have ever seen. He has an excellent disposition and is willing to explain all options and then his recommendations. Without reservation he is the BEST!
