See what our patients have to say: 

  • Dr Todd Hockenbury is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He operated on my foot and did a midfoot fusion along with a big toe fusion and a hammertoe correction. After suffering with a severe bunion and hammertoe for over 30 years he agreed to do surgery to correct the problem. One surgeon told me he could only amputate part of my foot. Another surgeon only wanted to shave a small portion of the bunion off without correcting the other problems, and told me I was too old, 73 yrs old, for extensive surgery. Dr. Hockenbury looked at my foot and said, yes, of course I can fix it. The correction and healing has been so perfect I can hardly believe it. If you've been told no, then see Dr Hockenbury. I would give him 100 stars if I could. 
  • Dr. Anciano is amazing. I was sent to him from UK to have a second opinion. I had received multiple ankle reconstructions that were unsuccessful. Dr. A knew exactly what was missing. Almost 3 months after surgery, I am stable and healing. I am walking straighter. Dr. A is very personable and treats me like a human. Highly recommend him 
  • My son broke his ankle playing soccer and required surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Hockenbury, great surgeon, bedside manner, etc., etc. My son will make a full recovery and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. 
  • Dr. Todd Hockenbury did a wonderful ankle replacement for me. The whole experience was very professional and the staff are so kind and helpful. I totally recommend him if your in need of a ankle replacement. He did mine perfect. 
  • Dr. Victor Anciano is friendly, knowledgeable and provides excellent care. He listens, diagnoses the issue and provides the best plan of treatment. I have been under his care before, and following an ankle surgery. I have been extremely satisfied.  Both he and his staff have been extremely helpful and willing to address any questions and follow ups.  He comes highly recommended for my ongoing/future orthopedic needs, and I highly recommend him to others. 
  • Dr. Anciano and his staff are the greatest. I was afraid when I broke my ankle and didn’t know what to expect. He explains everything, allows you to ask questions and pushes you to do your best during recovery. Whenever I left a message I was always answered in a timely manner. I can honestly say I felt the care and compassion and I’m these days that means a lot. Job well done! 
  • Great explanation of previous treatment, current assessment was through and developed a treatment plan that was realistic! Awesome communication and listening! Highly recommend and thank you!
