Dr. Jeng is a fabulous doctor in every way. His skills as surgeon are outstanding (I was blessed to have him do my ankle replacement) and he is very personable and answers all your questions (and I had a lot) thoroughly and politely.
I broke my left ankle in May 2018, and went to a different doctor. That doctor said to let the break heal on its on. I never was able to walk on that ankle again. Someone referred me to Mercy Hospital, where I met Dr. Jeng. He said that he would have fixed it so that it would have healed properly. Unfortunately, I had severe arthritis in that ankle, and the break forced me to having ankle replacement. My tibia was shifted forward about 1.5 cm from the center of my talus which put additional strain on the ankle joint and the bones and ligaments below that joint in my foot.
On Feb. 11th (7.5 weeks ago), Dr. Jeng did the ankle replacement and corrected the tibia shift so that is is centered over the talus. Now I am walking well thanks to Dr. Jeng.
