MOST RECENT REVIEW:
Dr. Karr is absolutely the best is his field. I was looking at major debriment surgery. And/Or a possible amputation, from calcaneal osteomyelitis. I went to him for a second opinion. Two minimal procedures later, and I'm back working and walking . He even pushed back against insurance when they thought one of the procedures wasn't necessary.
Thank you Dr. Karr for restoring my foot and life.
I had an accident on my foot and even though I was not an existing patient there and with no appointment, they accepted me when I walked in with a very friendly attitude:) the doctor and staff were super nice and professional. I was in and out within 30 minutes! They did have advanced equipment for X-ray and had the boot ready for me to put on! I couldn’t be more pleased.
A MESSAGE FROM DR. Jeffrey C. KARR
I really enjoy meeting, treating, and helping my patients. Everyone's ailment is equally important to me, from a painful corn to to a limb threatening wound. My office can get you in for an appointment quickly, and smoothly coordinate your care. We are here to take care of your bunions, hammertoes, joint pain, ingrown nails, gout, toenail fungus, tendonitis, sprains, fractures, wounds, infections, and growing pains. We can also provide orthotics, braces, and corrective orthopedic devices.
Over the last 20 plus years I have treated over 200,000 patient interactions and completed over 10,000 surgeries. Through my experience as a global educator I have had the pleasure of performing surgery in five counties. I am board certified in Podiatric surgery and medicine as well as holding two separate wound care board certifications with fellowship status. I have also completed three separate postdoctoral mini-fellowships in external fixation for restorative orthopedics and trauma twice in Kurgan, Russia and once in Athens, Greece. In total, I have performed surgery in five countries outside the United States: Russia, Greece, Colombia, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Outside the United States I have lectured and educated in Colombia, Argentina, Russia, Greece, Spain, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Puerto Rico, Egypt, and the Czech Republic. I have also pioneered ground braking surgical techniques in the treat of bone infection (osteomyelitis).
Our office provides state-of-the-art resources such as real time radiologic imaging called fluoroscopy, which provides superior imaging of your injury or illness and significantly shortens your visit.

I make every effort to manage your problem non-surgically. If in the event surgery is required, we will work with your medical doctor to maximize your health before any procedure is completed. We will then proceed with your procedure in confidence.
