I created this web site to familiarize my patients with my orthopaedic practice, my staff, and the services we provide.
I am a partner in the Fondren Orthopaedic Group. I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon dedicated to providing exceptional orthopaedic foot and ankle care in the Houston area since 2001. My orthopedic practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems. In preparation for this I have completed a 5 year orthopedic residency and additional year in foot and ankle fellowship training. This provided the opportunity for a broad based training and experience in the diagnosis and management(nonoperative and operative) of orthopedic and foot and ankle problems.
With over 20 years of experience as a physician and more than 12 years of foot and ankle specialization in orthopaedics, I attempt to take a highly interactive approach to caring for my patients. I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to the needs of patients, providing patient education, and presenting all the treatment options to the patient. This includes nonsurgical and surgical treatments options.
I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That is why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: how it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. With each treatment options, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I’ll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I’ll explain that avenue in depth.
During an initial visit, patients can expect to meet Dr. Loncarich’s assistants. They will schedule appointments, verify current insurance information, and provide you with any information(prescriptions and educational materials) you may need. We are committed to patient satisfaction.
I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and to helping you achieve your best possible musculoskeletal health.
