Skilled Surgical Care and Therapy Gave Me My Active Life Back

“After dealing with a non-healing ankle for 4 years I decided to meet with Dr. Blanco to get his opinion on what my options were. He pulled in Podiatrist Dr. Redding and the option she gave didn’t have a high success rate so I decided to have Dr. Blanco do the amputation. Surgery was set…
