Dr. Maxka brings his training and interest in wound care especially diabetic wounds to Hanover. He also has interest in biomechanics and sports medicine.
Dr. Maxka performs foot and ankle surgery but focus is on conservative treatment. The feet are part of the whole person and we must look at the back, hips and knees to understand foot pain.
