MinimallyInvasive Surgery

A minimally invasive surgery is a surgery that uses small cuts and special instruments to access the inside of the body. It avoids making large openings and harming the surrounding tissues and organs. It offers advantages such as reduced pain, bleeding, infection, and scarring, and quicker recovery time. It can be done with or without robotic assistance, depending on the type and complexity of the surgery.

Areas of Expertise

Achilles Tendon Disorders

Achilles Tendon Disorders

Achilles tendon disorders are injuries or abnormalities of the Achilles tendon, which is a strong fibrous cord present behind the ankle that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone.

Ankle Joint Replacement

Ankle Joint Replacement

Total ankle replacement, also known as total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pain and immobility due to severe end-stage arthritis at the ankle joint that has not responded to non-surgical treatments.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Minimally invasive bunion surgery, also known as keyhole bunion surgery, is a procedure to treat a foot condition called a bunion or hallux valgus, an enlargement of bone or soft tissue around the joint at the base of the big toe

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive method of treating soft tissue injuries. Shock waves are short energy waves with high intensity that can trigger a repair mechanism and reduce pain and sensitivity

Medical Expert Witness

A medical expert witness is a licensed healthcare professional who has the knowledge and experience to testify on a specific medical issue in a legal case. The medical expert witness can provide an independent and objective opinion on the cause and extent of injuries and other relevant matters.

What OurPatients Are Saying

  • Super nice dude with super good skills, great incision and a quick recovery, dr Gupta saved my life!

  • I just had Achilles surgery from Dr. Gupta in April 2019 and I couldn't be more happy and content with the decision. During the consult he was informative, he clearly listed out all of my options, and he asked for my expectations and the fitness goals that I would want to achieve after the procedure...

  • After a few years of intermittent bad to severe foot pain I finally went to an orthopedic MD who came highly recommended. Dr. Gupta was kind, thorough & compassionate. After diagnosis & treatment my symptoms are dramatically improved. So happy with my care & highly recommend. Excellent!

  • After seeing 7 doctors over 1 year, I selected Dr Akash Gupta for my minimally invasive bunion surgery. I never felt rushed. He explained my options multiple times, even connecting me with a previous patient. Recovery was exactly what I expected. His education and training are stellar.
