Dr. Siatta Dunbar
10 years experience female
I was born in West Africa and was raised in Reston, Virginia. I later attended The University of Virginia and obtained a degree in Architecture and Urban Planning. After working as a Construction Project Manager for multiple years, I made a decision to pursue medicine, with the desire to focus on prevention and wellness. My residency training in family medicine and additional fellowship training in primary care sports medicine (non-surgical orthopedics), gives me the unique skills to help my patients obtain and maintain their health and wellness goals.

A male asked:
Could try biologics: Would agree that a chronic tear would be treated without surgery and doubt that bracing will resolve your pain. Could try ultrasound guided cortisone injection to insure this is the reason for your pain. If so, then biologics (platelet rich plasma or bone marrow concentrate) injection would be next option.

A 20-year-old female asked:
Get follow-up care: Depending on how significant your ankle sprain is you can have persisted pain and difficulty walking. Not knowing how long ago your injury was its difficult to say if your symptoms are reasonable or concerning. Either way I would seek follow-up care from an Orthopedist or Sports Medicine physician.
