Which doctor is better at popping an ankle back into place ( more experience, training etc) dpm or orthopedic surgeon with foot ankle residency?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Benjamin Taylor
15 years experience in Orthopedic Surgery
Training: An orthopaedic surgeon with a foot and ankle fellowship has undergone many more years of training than a podiatrist. Most podiatrists have little experience with trauma er work, such as what you describe with reduction of an ankle fracture-dislocation. Orthopedic surgeons are also more familiar with treating these unstable injuries with surgery.
