Mercy Health Services, Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction

The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction (IFAR) is a division of The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital at Mercy Medical Center. The center is comprised of an award-winning team of surgeons who provide the best treatment options for foot, ankle, heel and toe issues.

As a result of renowned surgeon, Dr. Lew C. Schon, M.D., FACS joining the group at Mercy, HCM is working with IFAR to increase their capacity without expanding their existing footprint. In order to facilitate the increased capacity, the surgeons have agreed to give up their private offices to create what has become labeled as the “bullpen.” The surgeon’s offices are being renovated for additional exam, PA/MA workspace and imaging.

The bullpen is intended to house five (5) doctors in an open office plan and more importantly, create an environment that will allow the doctors to collaborate, communicate, and innovate together.
