“Dr. Hedrick and his office staff were awesome!! Very supportive, friendly, yet professional. I would recommend Dr. Hedrick to anyone who needs surgery on their ankle. I had just about given up hope of ever walking without pain when Dr. Hedrick told me about total ankle replacement surgery. I am already walking so much better and with a lot less pain. Thank you Dr. Hedrick!”
