Foot and Ankle Specialists
Our team of foot and ankle specialists is comprised of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians and dedicated, caring occupational and physical therapists, who provide everything patients need for their treatment and recovery.
The Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute Approach
Dr. Papa is an advocate of the Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute approach to orthopedic care and believes the decision to proceed with surgery should come only after trying nonsurgical options such as stretching and strengthening daily, remaining physically active, taking over-the-counter pain relievers as needed, applying ice and heat, and waiting to see if pain improves with time. More intensive nonsurgical options may include physical therapy and prescription medication management. If these options do not alleviate pain, Dr. Papa will review and advise on next steps, possibly surgery.
