Gaithersburg Foot and Ankle Surgery Center
The Gaithersburg Foot and Ankle Surgery Center is a fully accredited surgical center in Dr. Sherman’s office. Dr. Sherman has opened his own ambulatory surgery center, certified and licensed by the state of Maryland. We found that we could offer specialized procedures in a more informal setting at a fraction of the cost associated with hospital surgery.
Because outpatient foot surgery is all that we do here, we have become extremely proficient at this and our staff has done the procedures you may need hundreds of times.
We have all of the latest monitoring devices, operatory equipment and do procedures under local anesthesia or intravenous or conscious sedation. Our anesthesiologists are Board Certified and patients usually leave within 30 minutes after the completion of their procedure. We have a casual waiting room for family and friends. Parking is directly out front and free.
“I came to see Dr. Sherman for pain in my heel. We tried a few different things and I finally decided on the shock-wave [ESWT] therapy. Between that and cortisone shots I am pain free for the first time in several years. I am able to resume all my normal activities without any pain. I also appreciate the fact that Dr. Sherman is always on time. I never have to wait. He has a very nice staff and office.”
“I came in for pain on top of my right foot. Dr. Sherman said it was arthritis. He gave me cortisone shots in the painful area. I have now been ‘pain free’ for five weeks. I know the pain may return, but I now know that Dr. Sherman can rid me of it if it should return. Thank you Dr. Sherman.”
“The bone spur in my foot was so sharp that the pain was insufferable! I had endured the pain for about a year. I had stopped walking and stopped playing golf because it hurt too much. In desperation I went to Dr. Sherman who suggested ESWT, a noninvasive procedure. I had immediate relief and after two treatments the bone spur is no longer an issue â€“ and the pain is completely gone. I am able to walk 18 holes without any discomfort. My game is back and I am grateful to Dr. Sherman for the innovative solution — ESWT!”
