Muscle force through the Achilles tendon provides the “spring in our step.” Forces through the tendon are huge even with routine walking, so it’s no wonder that ruptures of the Achilles tendon are common.
Dr. Greisberg performed a major foot realignment and bunion/hammertoe surgery of which the outcome has been fantastic. I felt very confident in Dr. Greisberg and he was very forthcoming and clear as to what the surgery would entail and the recovery time needed. Happy to say I am walking great.

As a molecular biochemistry major at Yale, basic science research has been a part of Dr. Greisberg's career for 30 years. Perhaps his longest running project has been in chondrocyte apoptosis. Chondrocytes are the individual cells of cartilage. These cells are particularly difficult to work with; once damaged by trauma, they are not replaced by the body. This is why arthritis is such an common development after major orthopaedic trauma.
