Patients that Inspire

“Before my surgery, I was unable to walk or place any weight on my ankle. Five months after my procedure I was back to walking like normal thanks to Dr. Cintron. The flexibility returned and the movement allowed me to do a more of what I enjoy, like running, dancing with my wife, enjoying time with my kids and playing with them outside. After my surgery there was great follow-through from the staff; everyone is so friendly. If I had a friend with any type of injury, I would send them to Southeast Orthopedic Specialists because of the understanding and professionalism.”

-Allen M.

“I had a bone spur and due to overuse, I injured my Achilles tendon while refereeing soccer and rugby. I could barely walk, couldn’t run and I was no longer able to referee which is something I enjoy doing. I was referred to Dr. Cintron for a Haglund’s repair. When he first examined my injury, he got straight to the point and told me exactly what was wrong and that physical therapy alone wouldn’t correct the injury because of the bone spur. Dr. Cintron is great, he and his staff are so easy to work with and always keep you informed. My surgery was a tremendous success! I am able to walk and run again, I can get out of bed in the mornings with absolutely no pain. My physical fitness has improved because I have the ability to run again!”
