Foot & Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeon: Samuel B. Adams Jr., MD

Author: Duke Health

Hi, my name's Samuel Adams and I'm a Foot and Ankle surgeon at Duke. One of the reasons I went into foot and ankle surgery, because I can treat adults and children, people with arthritis, people with foot and ankle trauma, nerve disorders, all kinds of things. One of my favorite stories is about a lady who was involved in a car accident, and had multiple broken bones in her foot and leg. And some of those bones she actually lost at the scene of the accident.

She was a school teacher and a mother, and she had seen several other providers, and it was recommended she have an amputation. When I saw her, I decided that she'd be a great candidate for a new 3D printed technology. And I was able to put a 3D printed implant in her, and now she's walking again and we were able to save her leg. I love, again, all aspects of foot and ankle, the trauma, and the deformity correction.

That's really my passion, is being able to reconstruct somebody's foot to, they can't currently walk on it, and allowing them to walk again. I love meeting new people, and interacting with my patients, but I also love surgery, I find it very rewarding, and stimulating, and it keeps me going.
