... My doctor is also part of the Village Podiatry Group! I go to the Lawrenceville office -- Anthony Cutsaries is my doctor. He did my surgery 3 weeks ago at the Atlanta Foot and Ankle Center in Sandy Springs.

Hopefully I can get hold of him, or maybe his PA. My husband took picture of my foot on 5/11, the day the cast was removed. I compared the picture and my foot, I could definitely see it is swollen more than 3... (10 replies)
