Blackmon Darnell MD
Dr. Blackmon fixed my rotator cuff and I could not be more pleased with the entire procedure, he kept me out of pain with the nerve block; if you have this surgery take the block it is so worth it. The block is optional but keeps your arm numb like when the dentist numbs your tooth but last the first 24 hours which is the worst time after any surgery. He kept me comfortable and did a great repair even giving me before and after pictures of my shoulder repair. Any bad review I read about him prior to my surgery said they were frustrated by the long wait to be seen, but remember if he is behind it is because he is taking the time to talk to his patients, as he did me. He even game by the morning of surgery spent time talking to me and explaining the nerve block option and answering my questions. He was worth the waiting room wait, which yes sometimes was long. But I would use him again without anytime. I have had several different surgeries and this one was done right before Christmas and I was able to enjoy it with my family.

Tips & Advices
Knock knees are when a child of average weight stands normally with his or her ankles apart but the knees touch. This is usually a result of normal growth patterns, but could be an indicator of bone disease.
Flat feet can't be cured using insoles or supportive shoes, but these devices might relieve the pain associated with flat feet.
The Ponseti Method has become the go-to treatment for babies born with clubfeet who are otherwise healthy. It avoids invasive surgery by using a series of casts that manipulate tissues in the legs and feet into correct alignment. The Ponseti Method should be begun within one to two weeks of birth. It consists of between five and nine casts, changed weekly, with the final cast left on for three weeks. Before the final cast is set, most patients have their Achilles tendon cut in a simple office procedure. By the time the cast is removed, the tendon should be healed and regrown to the proper length. After the final cast is taken off, a removable splint is worn almost constantly for three months, then throughout the night for three to four years.
A sprain is the tearing or stretching of ligaments, the connective tissue found between joints. A strain is the tearing or stretching of muscles or tendons, the tissue that connects muscles to bones.
