Foot problems can be difficult to treat and many patients do not experience the outcomes they desire after foot surgery. Dr. Ho helps to utilize patient reported outcomes to help better understand patient pain and function problems. This allows for customized care that helps identify treatment options that have the highest reliability of improving patient outcomes. Dr. Ho was given the J. Leonard Goldner Award in 2016 by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society for outstanding research on how patient reported outcomes can improve patient care.
Heel pain from plantar fasciitis can be completely debilitating and some patients continue to have pain despite prolonged treatment. Dr. Ho utilizes a treatment protocol that demonstrated a 92% success rate in patients who had plantar fasciitis for more than ten months and failed all previous treatment.
