Greetings from Down Under. After many emails and a very long phone conversation with Dr Kaplansky I can tell you his warmth, generosity and excitement about his profession is genuine and infectious. He speaks honestly about mShow moreany subjects in particular Lapiplasty, of which he has extensive knowledge and experience. You have to imagine what it's like to need this when it's a hell of a time to travel to your side of the planet all the way from Australia where I live with all the restrictions, obstacles and risks in my way just to get there and line up at Dr Kaplansky's door for Lapiplasty surgery. I read his reviews. I watched his webinar and while there are no questions about his dedication, or his specialist skills in all things podiatry, there's a quality to the man himself beyond skills and training that speaks about who he is and pride in what he does that makes the 'patients best interest at heart' an understatement. This obvious, yet rare, level of sincerity is how I know my feet are in the best hands. Dr Kaplansky has proven to be more than a competent surgeon and a great bloke. His willingness to go above and beyond to provide all levels of assistance, and my needs are more complicated than usual, was a humbling surprise not to mention the guts to take on this challenge without hesitation. I trust no one else and I can't wait! Zana C QLD, Australia
Before the surgery, the doctor and nurse patiently explained the procedure to me, and I had a good understanding of it. The day of the surgery, the nurse, anesthesiologist, and surgeon were all very kind, which made me feel comforShow moretable and not nervous at all. The most exciting thing is that a week after the surgery, I saw a brand new, beautiful foot, which I never dared to imagine having in my lifetime. And soon after, I was able to walk, drive, and do normal activities again. I am very grateful to doctor Kaplansky who is truly a miracle worker and amazing!
