Timothy Beck, M.D. is an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in foot and ankle surgery. His interests include lower extremities, knee, ankle and bunions as well as foot and ankle reconstructive surgery.
“I am deeply concerned about my patients’ ability to resume their regular activities after they have been injured. We take so much for granted…walking, running, climbing stairs. When I am working with a patient, we are both focused on one thing – to restore as much normal function as possible. The good news is that the treatments that are available now are better than ever before – and improving all the time.”
