Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is scheduled to get another opinion on his foot injury on Wednesday. He is travelling to see a foot specialist in Charlotte, NC. This opinion has been delayed, since the doctor has been out of town. Schaub could have received superior care here in Houston, however.

Houston boasts some of the best foot and ankle surgeons in the country. Aside from disregarding the Texans' own team doctors, he is also overlooking world renowned podiatrists who could have already put him on the road to recovery. Instead, Schaub is still hobbling around untreated in a fracture boot. The Lisfranc injury he is dealing with needs definitive therapy, probably surgery, and delaying the treatment will not do him any favors.

I am proud to be part of a community that has offers some of the best in foot and ankle surgery. Dr. Sam Mendicino, Dr. David Blumfield, Dr. Asia Lo, and Dr. Vito Speciale all come to mind as the right choice to care for an injury such as Schaub's.
