“After years of increasing pain and decreasing mobility, due to osteoarthritis, I was referred to Dr. Mangone and his staff at BRBJ for evaluation. Following a thorough explanation of the options available, and what outcomes could get expected. It got decided that ankle arthrodesis and other procedures gave me the best chance to resume most of my normal activities. Four months later, I am virtually pain-free, and walking as well as I hoped to be at this point. Next week I will once again be wading and flyfishing my favorite trout stream. Many thanks to Dr. Mangone, Jennifer, and Cara. You and all your staff are the best, and I appreciate everyone's sense of humor.”

Dr. Mangone did a complete ankle reconstruction on my right ankle, giving me the freedom to run and hike even better than before. This past year I had issues with my left ankle and, again, had ankle surgery on my left ankle on February 1st. Now, four months later, I am completely mobile and hiking over three miles. I am getting back on my running schedule much quicker than I expected thanks to Dr. Mangone’s expertise.”

“After working with Dr. Mangone with Achilles tendinitis/torn tendon in Achilles for almost a year, we finally had a very successful event! I didn't want to talk about surgery and was willing to do as much physical therapy as possible. Once I had accomplished all I could from that therapy, there were just three options - learn to live with the pain, have surgery or do another procedure "Orthobiologics PRP." I thought I could live with the pain but that proved to be too much to handle. Both the remaining systems explained to me, and with my lifestyle, the surgery did not appear to be an option because of the required downtime. I opted to give the PRP procedure a chance knowing that it was not a real guarantee to relieving the pain in my foot. Dr. Mangone explained everything he would be doing using my blood, separating it and inserting it into the torn tendon. He did everything in his office. The first few days the area just felt bruised, but over a few weeks, it began exploring so much better. By the time I had my 6 wk visit, I could honestly tell him that I no longer was having to take stairs one at a time and not having to do serious stretching before I could get out of bed in the morning. It feels almost entirely back to normal to me. I know it will take time for everything to heal totally, but I can't thank Dr. Mangone enough for making such a difference with the healing of my foot. It's a fascinating procedure, and I am delighted with the results and so happy it got offered to me as an option.”

“I was born with Polio, and for 64 yrs of my life my right foot was curved to the outside, and I walked on the side of my foot. Fitted a cast for four months made my foot turn even more to the outside, and I was unable to get my heel to the ground. Dr. Mangone from the very first visit told me that he could correct my condition. I was given a referral to Dr. Mangone from Dr. Sonja Humphrey of Mission Hospital. She convinced me that Dr. Mangone would be able to correct my problem. I did some research before my visit on Dr. Mangone, and he was highly recommended by the AMA, and patient stories convinced me that this is the person who could transform my life. After my first meeting, I was sure that this was a condition that he could correct. I was very confident and trusted Dr. Mangone, plus I was prepared to go thru the lengthy rehabilitation. Dr. Mangone and his PA Jennifer always responded to emails in a timely fashion. I am now able to resume the lifestyle that I had to put on hold for years. Do to my treatment; I can now walk without crutches, play golf, tennis, go for hikes and yard work with no limitations. Dr. Mangone and Jennifer listened to me during my visits, did not spend time staring at a computer. We had eye to eye contact, and I did not feel a rush to terminate the appointment. Everything explained to me was accurate. I am genuinely thankful for the changes Dr. Mangone has performed on me to change my life.”

– Frank G.
“I am a 75-year-old female, who was diagnosed with a torn Achilles Tendon. I was referred to Dr. Peter Mangone after having pain for 5-6 months. Dr. Mangone gave me choices to get the tendon repaired, traditional surgery, Ten Jet procedure, physical therapy ( which I had already had for this condition) recommended by another physician. Dr. Mangone told me that he had not ever done the Ten Jet procedure. I thought about it for a month and finally decided to have the Ten Jet procedure, and I am so very grateful to Dr. Mangone for agreeing to do the procedure. It saved me from many months of rehabilitation. My surgery was on September 7th. From the time I returned home from the surgery, I did not have the pain I had endured for months. I had swelling and soreness, but not the pain. Within six weeks to 2 months, I was back to normal, and the swelling and soreness diminished. Thank you, Dr. Mangone.”

“Dr. Mangone reconstructed my right ankle due to cerebral palsy issues. As a result, I was able to resume running and hiking on a consistent basis. The reconstruction gave me back my active lifestyle. Now that I am having issues with my left ankle and scheduled for an upcoming surgery, I feel confident that Dr. Mangone will have me back to my active lifestyle in record time. Without his orthopedic expertise, I would not be able to participate in my outdoor activities fully.”

“Dr. Mangone and his team repaired my severely broken ankle (mountain biking accident). The entire staff was kind, efficient, and provided personalized care. I broke my fibula, tibia, and bits and pieces holding those bones in place. My foot was hanging from my leg!

– Lucy M.
“Dr. Mangone was delightful and took the time to explain everything to me on what I needed to have done.

I am hoping that after this surgery I will be able to move my toes and not be in so much pain.”
– Carol M.
“Dr. Mangone and his staff are the best. He is very caring, explains everything in detail. He operated on my broken ankle in November. A terrifying experience for me. At age 69 years I had never had such an extensive injury - needed a plate, ligament repair. I thought I would never walk normally. After eight weeks off my foot, not fun using wheelchair and walker, I start physical therapy. I am now able to walk. Cannot do everything I did before - range of motion not 100% but thanks to Dr. Mangone - what a great surgeon. I do not need a cane to walk. Every visit to his office, everyone was so attentive and put me at ease. I look forward to my six-month visit in June. I have been recommending Dr. Mangone to my friends - if they ever need help in that area. Thank you, Dr. Mangone and staff.”
– Christine T.
“Dr. Mangone is the best foot doctor I have ever been to. A friend who has multiple issues with her feet referred him to me as a possible solution to my chronic problem. He is trying something relatively new to me, and I think it is working. Previous attempts to solve the problem with other doctors had not worked. I appreciate the options he presented to me to solve the problem.”
– Jean O.
“It is MY grand and good fortune to land in the skillful and diligent skilled hands of PETER G. MANGONE, M.D. when a year ago I took a spill down my home carpeted stairs fracturing my right ankle. This occurred on a late Friday afternoon/early evening, and Dr. Mangone was the orthopedic doctor "on call." After he received my "electronic" ankle x-rays and learned I was alone, I was admitted to and treated like a princess. Dr. Mangone did his initial evaluation early the following morning, was extremely cordial and whisked me off to surgery without delay. He calmed whatever anxiety/fear I had just with his warm smile and professionalism; admitting that ankles and feet were his preferred favorites. Now, how great is that? Once in the operating room, all I could do was smile, with Dr. Mangone. Now take a few deep breaths for me please and together we'll have you right back to your room. All is good now, thanks to EmergeOrtho, Dr. Mangone, and his staff. Back home the following day.”
– Stephanie R.
“I came to get a second opinion and was so impressed that I decided to have Dr. Mangone do my surgery. Everything went accurately as he had explained and the follow up was excellent. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see the doctor or his PA. The staff is very friendly and helpful.”
– Kathleen M.
“Everything about my visit was great. I have no complaints. Dr. Mangone was very professional and well educated in his field.”
– Joseph B.
“I twisted my ankle while riding my motorcycle and fractured it in two places. I had never experienced a broken bone before so I didn’t know what to expect. After meeting Dr. Mangone and listening to him explain the nature of my injury and what to expect post-op I felt confident about the surgical outcome. I recovered much faster than I had anticipated. and I now lead a very active life and enjoy long day hikes of 10 plus miles a day. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Mangone and staff for such a great outcome!”
– Christian S.
“Dr. Mangone operated on both my wife's feet so I knew he was an excellent surgeon because she had excellent results. When I started having foot problems I knew where to go. I had my surgery on my right foot and have gotten excellent results. Even more important is even though Dr. Mangone is a very busy man he takes the time to listen to you and/or your complaints. Thank you Dr. Mangone.”
– Peter S.
“Dr. Mangone is awesome! He is very knowledgeable and knew immediately what I needed. He also explained medically exactly what the surgery would entail.”
– Dorothy C.
“Just months ago, I fell from a 6 ft retaining wall in my back yard. I had broken my right arm and my heel bone was smashed into many pieces. I had previously had a hip replacement a few years back with BRBJ/Asheville. Because they provided such good care, I chose them again for both body parts. Dr. Mangone was the surgeon for the heel. Dr. Napoli was the surgeon for my arm. Both body parts required surgery including screws and putty for the heel and a steel plate and screws for the arm. BRBJ/EmergeOrtho was able to manage all my medical needs right from the first visits, surgeries and therapy for both. Even though this was a horrible accident, they made the whole process from beginning to end seamless. Dr. Mangone and his PA and nurse were very caring and attentive. My heel bone was in pieces, Dr. Mangone was able to re-build my heel with some of the original broken pieces, putty and screws. It was amazing to me. I am out of my wheelchair and walking without any aid. Truly a great outcome that exceeded my expectations!!”
– Paul E.
“Doctor Mangone explained my conditions and options clearly, without being bias. He had no problem with me choosing physical therapy to try and control the pain. When it became apparent I needed surgery I knew who I wanted to perform it. He had my full confidence and trust. He performed a Haglund correction and a bunion correction on my right foot. He did an excellent job and I am thrilled with the results!”

“Caring, listens to me, informative, has excellent staff who follow through on issues, and keeps up with new methods in his field.”
– Patricia C.
“I love the entire Staff, especially Dr. Mangone. I felt that they really cared and took the time to discuss all my concerns and treatment with me. After experiencing a fall and breaking my ankle, it was comforting to get the care and attention I needed. Compliments to the staff at the front desk. Not all patients are in good moods when they arrive due to various issues but the staff treats everyone like they are the first patient of the day. I've listened while waiting on how caring they are when they are assisting patients. A very pleasant experience for an unpleasant time for me due to the break. I'm on the way to recovery and much is owed to Dr. Mangone and his wonderful Staff -- thank you!!!!”
– Ann B.

“Dr. Mangone and his staff were amazing! My surgery was highly successful because of his expertise. I went from not being able to stand up in the morning & having daily ankle and foot pain to running! Yes, it took several months of great physical therapy and work with BRBJ post-op, but it was worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Mangone, his staff and the PT team at BRBJ on Livingston!”
