Acute injuries, chronic symptoms or deformity correction, we provide surgical solutions for those in need. Dr. Metaxas brings a unique skill set to the table, combining a robust background in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, advanced deformity planning and correction, minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques, as well as basic Ilizarov and advanced Taylor Spatial Frame external fixation applications. All focused on the foot and ankle, all focused on you.
Dr. Metaxas collaborates with local anesthesiologists and anesthesia groups to provide more advanced regional anesthetics, which have long been associated with less post-operative pain and less nausea. Even more significantly, a lower incidence of blood clots, less blood loss, and less of an inflammatory response have also been reported. This all results in quicker recovery times. We collaborate with some of the best foot and ankle focused physical therapists in San Francisco, often the difference between a good and an excellent surgical result.
Dr. Metaxas’ research interests have involved principal investigation into the application of new surgical technologies to improve outcomes. With an emphasis on evidence-based medicine, we are committed to the development of new techniques, the advancement of research, and active participation in education of patients, established medical professionals, residents in-training, and medical students.
