Innovators in Medicine: Foot and Ankle Specialist Barrow Says Don’t Give Up Lifestyle — or Fashion!
Why did you choose this area of medicine? I wanted to change the face and perception of the specialty. I wanted to make a difference by offering more options to patients that would allow them to live the lifestyle they wanted.
In what way have you been an innovator? I am the only foot and ankle specialist in the Houston metro area offering both alternative customized Aesthetic and Regenerative options for patients with foot and ankle pain. Many times patients are never offered or even aware of these alternative options and are often told to give up their lifestyle of fitness or fashion.
What is most rewarding about your work? Being able to see patients get back to doing what makes them happy and live the life they want again. I understand wanting to be active because I live that life as well, so treating my patients becomes more personal to me.
What do you hope your patients tell others about you? I hope that patients continue to tell others that they have more options for living the life they want. To be active, pain free and live their best life again...
