Dr King is a very talented yet cautious surgeon and a caring doctor. He performed a calcaneal osteotomy and first MTP joint fusion with tendon transfer on my right foot in November 2017. This was a very complex, risky and long operation. I now have 8 screws, a plate and a wire in my foot. Every professional, who has subsequently seen his surgery on xray, is amazed at his ability. Before this operation, I hobbled instead of walking and could not mobilise very far without pain. This was devastating for a woman not yet fifty years old. Today (April 2018), I am walking a few kilometres in the mornings, and am building on this distance, without any pain in my foot. I am exceedingly grateful to Dr King for returning my ability to walk and thus enjoy travel and life.
