Christine’s Story

Thanks to Dr. Castro, his team and the excellent physical therapy I received at Summit Orthopedics!

Dr. Castro recently performed surgery on my foot for a bunion and arthritis. Before the surgery the pain increased to the point of limiting enjoyment of walking, travelling and gardening. It affected my sleep and every step. After the visit with Dr. Castro and getting his advice on treatment I decided it was time to get this thing fixed. He did a great job! His team is knowledgeable, responsive and kind. Carefully following their post op and recovery instructions my foot is in great shape and I’m back to walking and gardening and sleeping well. Thanks to Dr. Castro, his team and the excellent physical therapy I received at Summit Orthopedics!
