Thank you, Dr. Esway!
Although I had a complicated problem, Dr. Esway made me feel at ease. He told me that he would do everything he could to make me better. I could see in his eyes that he really meant it. I was hoping for a 50 percent improvement in my condition. After surgery, I am 90 percent better. Dr. Esway changed my life. I am so grateful.

THE FOREFOOT extends from the ball of the foot to the toes. Forefoot pain may be due to bunions, toe deformities and neuromas.
THE MIDFOOT runs from the ball of the foot to the heel and includes the arch. Midfoot pain may be due to arthritis or stress fractures.
THE HINDFOOT, also known as the heel, is the area between the ankle and the foot's arch. Heel pain may be due to plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendon problems.

Fredericksburg Orthopaedist Opens Patient-Centered Practice

To Combat Impersonal, Production-Based Treatment, Dr. Jan-Eric Esway Launches a New Practice Location Dedicated to One-on-One Patient Care and Minimal Wait Times

FREDERICKSBURG, VA--(Mar 30, 2016) - To provide an improved patient experience, an orthopaedic surgeon in Fredericksburg, Dr. Jan-Eric Esway, recently opened a new practice location. He says the office features a streamlined look and feel to give individuals more focused treatment, shorter wait times, and enhanced care. Dr. Esway explains that the reason for the move was to prioritize the doctor-patient relationship and to disrupt the assembly line style environment common to other orthopaedic facilities.

As the only fellowship-trained orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon in the Fredericksburg area, Dr. Esway says he feels a duty to provide individuals with exceptional care. He fears that patients who are rushed through visits could receive incomplete or inaccurate diagnoses and subpar treatment. "Many of today's surgical practices are production-based; meaning that the number of patients is more important than the amount of time spent with patients." To counter this move towards the impersonal, he says the new location will offer:

  • Convenient online access to patient resources
  • Fast appointments
  • Decreased wait times
  • Individualized treatment plans

Dr. Esway emphasizes that the new location will have all the same procedures and treatment options as his previous practice. However, he notes that patients with diabetes-related complex wounds will be referred to another physician with access to a wound center to ensure the best possible care.

Everyone deserves to receive exceptional medical treatment, Dr. Esway states, and he hopes the new practice will usher in a field-wide trend towards a patient-centered approach. "The patient experience is extremely important to me. My smaller practice will have less administrative barriers and provide patients with a more personalized experience."
