"Boy do I feel better! I was scared to be told I needed foot surgery. But my bunions were killing me. It all went well. Everyone was so nice both at Dr. Mankey’s office and the surgery center. Recovery took a while but I’m back to work and in normal shoes again. I feel so much better and can take long walks around Greenlake with my dog. Thanks to everyone at OPA!"

Dear Dr. Mankey,
About one week after celebrating my 40th birthday I found myself in need of an orthopedic surgeon for a ruptured Achilles; no minor injury. I wasn't injured playing basketball or tennis, but rather I was performing the Scottish Highland Fling for some co-workers at a company event! Never having needed the services of an orthopedic surgeon before, I asked around the office for a referral. I discovered two of my co-workers had previously ruptured their Achilles as well, both playing basketball. One had a more successful surgery than the other, so I was very apprehensive about needing surgery. Another co-worker volunteered to ask her friend for a referral (he had assisted in orthopedic surgeries in some capacity). He told my co-worker than if he ever needed the surgery himself, he would without question have Dr. Mankey be his surgeon. Based on the "friend of a friend" referral I made an appointment with Dr. Mankey for a consultation and the rest is history. My surgery was performed by the end of that same week and I was on the road to recovery. The surgery was a complete success. I can rise up on the ball of my foot and jump without hesitation. I enjoy swimming, ice skating, skiing, and rollerblading with my family. It's been nearly six years since my surgery and I'm confident my Achilles that Dr. Mankey repaired will keep up with the demands of my busy life. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mankey to a friend or family member in need of such specialized orthopedic surgery.
My name is Orin, I just turned forty this April and am still moving forward, quite well actually. In 1994 I was an avid rock climber, trying to reach the level of a competitive professional climber.
That ended abruptly in April, 1994. I took a large fall from a route I was climbing, in the range of forty to fifty feet of free fall. I landed directly on the ground, made up of sandstone rock and granite, not a soft place to land. I survived the fall, but I did not escape without significant injury. The worst of the damage came to my left foot, the first point of contact with the ground. My heel had been crushed, to a level that made the first orthopedic surgeon in Bend, Oregon say “ I cannot work on this injury, it is like someone took a sledge hammer to a walnut, to many pieces to re-build the damage” He even told me that walking in the future may be limited. I was referred up to Seattle to meet with a Dr. Mankey, a specialist in this area of the foot and the type of surgery that only he could perform at the time. I went through the consultation process and surgery needed to repair the damage, requiring the use of cadaver bone and a fair number of screws and plates. I still look at the x-rays every now and again to see how much was needed to repair the damage. Dr. Mankey not only assured me that I could walk fine again, but that if things went well I could maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. I am not sure to this day that he meant for me to be doing what I am doing today. In 2007 I picked up the sport of running, not just 5k or 10k races, but going as far as running ultra-marathons and Marathons. My foot has held up to thousands of miles of pounding and extensive exercise, beyond what most healthy people view as healthy. I have remained highly competitive in my life, no longer in rock climbing, but in the pursuit of running. I have completed a total of eight marathons, all between the time 0f 2:35:23 and 2:50:07 in time. That means that my foot has held up to an average mile pace of 5:55 per mile for an entire marathon. I have also raced very competitively in three Ultra-marathons over thirty one miles in length, and ended up in the top five at all three of those events. Dr. Mankey’s surgery and skill in repairing my heel have let me chase the things I love, and do them like I was never injured. I have no long lasting effects from the surgery, I rarely even think about it. I cannot thank Dr. Mankey enough for the work he did for me. He gave me the greatest gift a person can receive, a chance to chase your dreams and follow the path to adventure. I am not a person that sits idle well, I need to be active and moving, and Dr. Mankey gave me the opportunity to continue in this endeavor. I did mention that I gave up on rock climbing, yet I did not say mountaineering. After the surgery, about a year I began climbing every mountain I could find in a book. I have since climbed every peak in Oregon, Mt. Rainier and many of the Washington Cascade peaks. With two good feet it is amazing what one can accomplish…..Thanks for everything Dr. Mankey and I hope to never see you again, at least on the operating table.
Dear Dr. Mankey,
“The expertise, experience and professionalism of your staff were amazing. The fantastic surgery by Dr. Mankey was terrific. I don't think anyone would have done a better job on my foot reconstruction. Thanks again for everything!
