It's been 6 weeks since my bunion surgery under local anesthetic in the office. I can not believe how quickly I recovered. After 5 days I was up and around in the house & have continued to improve. Already walking the dog. I wouldn't hesitate to have my other foot done (if need be) & I would highly recommend Dr. Booth & his staff.
I had plantar fasciatis problems BIG time and he did a great job as I could not walk very far at the time and now walk 18 holes EVERYDAY without a problem.........really glad I went to him with my problem......a big Thank you Bruce, from Fern
Dr. Booth performed a bunion operation and fused the toe nearest the big toe. Before a year the big toe clearly showed a bunion again and the fused toe was crooked in both joints, was raised and in a position beginning to overlap the next toe. I had surgery subsequently performed by a surgeon who lengthened both tendons and placed screws into my foot to ensure it never recurred. There are different kinds of bunion operations and I suggest anyone considering bunion surgery check out what kind of operation is going to be done and whether or not it will be effective for your foot. I was operated on in an appointment room with the door open. I was dressed in the same pants I had worn all day. (no gown was offered) Anaesthetic was done through needles in the foot to freeze the foot. I was awake during the procedure. When I went to discuss the results of the operation with him his comment was, “I can’t help what the body does.”
Had a bunion surgery in May and very unsatisfied with the results. Went back to show him and he insisted the toe area is straight and done right. I still have a huge protrusion off the side and top of my foot, it is now August, and my pedicure girl laughs when she sees the outcome of this surgery. He is a very nice Dr. to talk to,seemed very knowledgeable about the surgery,which lasted only 1/2 an hour with a local freezing, but I am so dissappointed with my results. My foot is still ugly and having trouble finding shoes that don't hurt. Wish I could send a picture with this comment.
I had my two bunions operated and fixed at doctors Booth in 2009, now is 2011 and I am so happy with the results. Dr. Booth is very professional, skillfull, helpfull and I have recommeded him to everybody I know that want to have their bunions fixed. Thank you Dr. Booth now I can wear young cool female shoes as I am only 33. My confidence have increased because of that. The best thing of all is that he only gave local anaesthesia and I left the room walking after each operation. I had been told in the past by other surgeons that I would have to go under general anaesthesia and that the results might not be good. Dr, Booth is definately a genius.
i am 8 months post op bunion surgery. he recommended NOT doing the neuroma surgery, but instead made me PROPER orthotics that have allowed me to avoid a surgery that cuts a nerve. within a short time of wearing the new inserts and post op, the callus near my big toe on sole of foot greatly reduced. no more soaking and pumicing the callus all the time. Dr.Booth explained everything in detail, and then all over again on the day of surgery when i was anxious. he let my father watch the procedure, and we took pictures. i am so lucky to have been referred to this doctor. i was given home number in case of problems but never had to use it. i did call the office twice with questions and his experienced staff had the answers for me. i strongly recommend this doctor. thank you doctor booth!

I found Dr. Booth to be very helpful with my problem and he was able to take care of the matter right away. That was almost 5 years ago and I have only been back once since then and to me that is excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone with foot problems.
he explained what he would do and why, and the day of surgery he explained again to reassure me and answer new questions i had. was available also in following weeks to answer questions. he confirmed my year old belief that the orthotics i have are wrong for my feet, so is making new ones. the benefit is apparent just by comparing the two types of orthotics. he recommended NOT doing one of the surgeries just yet as the proper orthotics should alleviate the problem. his knowledge and manner were helpful and left me feeling safe in his hands. all that with driving 8 hours to for the treatment.
