Orthopedic Surgeon with Fellowship Training in Foot and Ankle Surgery
Dr. Bryan Waxman is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in treating disorders of the foot, ankle and knee, including sports injuries, trauma and the various forms of arthritis. He also provides care for traumatic and sports-related shoulder and elbow injuries. Dr. Waxman offers patients advanced treatments, including new techniques for meniscus repairs, ankle fusions and tendon transfers. When medically advisable, he offers arthroscopic surgery, which reduces pain and speeds recovery times.
Cheerful and easy-going, Dr. Waxman combines strong surgical abilities with good communication skills. In providing care, he looks at the patient as a whole, treating the person, not merely the orthopedic problem. He seeks to take care of the problem with the treatment that will be easiest and most effective for patients.
A sprinter on his high school and college track teams, Dr. Waxman sustained stress fractures and torn knee cartilage. His admiration for the doctors who treated him inspired Dr. Waxman to become an orthopedic surgeon himself. The team physician at Highland Park High School for 15 years, Dr. Waxman is proud of the trust placed in him by the community that he serves.
I’m just part of the team. I’m the team leader, but we use multiple resources to accomplish the goal, which is making the patient better.
