OFFICIAL TEAM PHYSICIANS FOR
“Thanks to Dr. Papa I can walk normal. Dr Papa had to do extensive surgery to fix my foot. I am so thankful he took on my case. I had gone for many consultations & none of the Dr’s wanted to do the corrective surgery that I required. I can’t give him enough praise. He is #1 in my book”
Dr. Papa is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon who specializes in the treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle. During his 27 years in Central Florida he has established himself as the go-to person in the surgical correction of both common and complex deformities of the foot and ankle (including bunions, hammertoes, flat feet and high arched feet). He also treats patients with the full spectrum of acute and chronic foot and ankle conditions. His meticulous approach and pride in his work has allowed him to return thousands of injured patients to their previous level of activity.
Above & Beyond:
He proud to offer all of his patients 24/7 call in access to Jewett Orthopaedic’s Patient Contact Center. Dr. Papa also understands that injuries can happen at anytime and recommends that patients who require surgery to repair their broken bone(s) or torn ligament(s) and are unable to secure a timely appointment on their own, that they leave a message for his medical assistant who can usually get them in to see Dr. Papa within 1-2 days.
