Joint and Limb Preservation

Preserving Joints - Dr. Wrotslavsky understands the disappointment that can be associated with being told that only joint fusion or joint replacement can treat a particular condition. His goal is to make these procedures a last resort because he knows that joint fusion procedures often cause pain elsewhere and may result in a limited range of motion. If either procedure fails, the result is significant bone loss. That is why Dr. Wrotslavsky always strives to preserve the joins whenever possible via alternative remedies.
Preserving Limbs - Dr. Wrotslavsky strives to preserve limbs and their functionality whenever possible. He uses surgical techniques to aggressively stave off infections while educating patients and family members about tips to help them preserve limbs. He ensures that each patient clearly understands the risks and benefits along with the rehabilitation process that is completed after surgery in order to preserve the functionality of their limbs.

Patient Testimonials
Dr. Wrotslavsky has treated me for diabetic ulcers and Charcot foot. I had multiple ulcers on my toes and feet, which required several surgeries,
and the use of a cast. I am grateful that both of my feet, including my toes, remain intact. I now walk with a mold for my ankle in my
shoes. Dr. Wrotslavsky has always been supportive to my family, and I appreciate his genuine concern for my well-being.
JW, San Diego CA
I underwent bunion surgery about 5 years ago with Dr. Wrotslavsky and have had no pain since. Now I can wear my high heels without
any discomfort. My work as a teacher requires me to be standing on my feet all day. I can now do that thanks to Dr. Wrotslavsky.
