For a Santa Barbara woman, distance is no object when it means receiving the best orthopedic care.

Dr. Tocci first did a cleanup operation to give Richardson a little more time before he removed the damaged cartilage and bone from the ankle joint and replaced it with prosthetics in January 2012.

“She did very well with the ankle replacement,” Dr. Tocci says. “She got back to walking and her other activities with good pain relief.”
