Foot infections may occur after trauma to the foot, loss of tissue because of contamination from foreign material and/or invasion of bacteria or fungus.
A bunion, also called a hallux valgus, is an enlargement of bone or soft tissues around the joint at the base of the big toe that results in the formation of a bump.
Dr. George B. Holmes, Jr. has been the Director of the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Section at Rush since 1992. He has also been on the Editorial Board of Foot and Ankle International since 1989 and has spoken before numerous local, national and international audiences.
Dr Holms is an excellent foot doctor. He has the experience and knowledge far superior than most in his field. We appreciated he took time to answer questions (I usually have a lot). His staff is professional, and really nice to deal with. Dr Holms has been on time for our appointments and sometimes early.
Dr Holmes was very relaxed, informative, and understanding. He did not rush the process nor did he dismiss any of my concerns. He didn't push for any extra services and you can tell he was genuinely focused on my concerns rather than trying to make some quick money.In all, Dr Holmes in my opinion is one of a kind;
Kind, compassionate, and extremely knowledgable. Has performed surgeries on three members of our family. I have recommended him to many satisfied friends
