Hi – I’m Doctor David Caminear. I’m a foot and ankle surgeon here at Connecticut Orthopaedics. What I like about my job is the ability to treat patients both operatively and non-operatively. And interestingly, the vast majority of problems, in foot and ankle, can be treated conservatively or non-operatively. But, when we have to we intervene and it’s all in an effort to improve a patient’s lifestyle, quality of life, and function. At the end of a case, I would like my patients to say that I was careful, thorough, and thoughtful, and listened to their concerns, in an effort to achieve their desired outcome and surgical result.
