When it Takes a Spy Mission to Talk an Your Ankle Surgery


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Kim Jong-Un appears publicly, but needs a cane after ankle surgeryA little while back, I wrote a blog about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and how reports were circulating that he’d broken both his ankles after a substantial weight gain and overly vigorous activity.

In the midst of those reports, Jong-un completely vanished from the public eye; he only re-appeared a few weeks ago, using a walking stick but not wearing casts.

During his absence, people speculated that perhaps his government had been overthrown in a coup; others surmised that he was extremely ill and did not want to reveal his weakness publicly.

Since North Korea is an already-unstable nation with nuclear weapons, any unrest in the country warrants international concern so, naturally, spies needed to investigate the situation.

During a legislative briefing held last week, the Australian NIS (National Intelligence Service) cleared up all the confusion, thanks to information obtained by South Korean spies.

Apparently, foreign medical experts were flown to Pyongyang in September, in order to perform ankle surgery on Jong-un, removing a cyst that was found on his ankle joint earlier in the year.  His recovery has apparently progressed to the point where weight bearing and public appearances are, once again, possible.

If you’re living in Houston and need to have foot, toe or ankle surgery, you don’t need to scour the globe for an expert, like Kim Jong-un, or make your search top secret. Instead, schedule an appointment with Houston foot surgeon Dr. Andrew Schneider, who offers a comprehensive evaluation of any and all foot injuries and is happy to offer second opinions on existing diagnoses.
