Jacob, you were so professional. You gave me complete faith in your ability as a skilled surgeon to fix my unusual fracture and constant pain I was in, allowing me to walk/run normally. You went the extra mile with my complex medical history to perform the surgery and get the best outcome. You have a truly incredible team around you also. It’s very refreshing to see a medical practice run so smoothly and efficiently while providing friendly service.
Dr Kaplan and his staff are first class in every way. Dr Kaplan clearly explains and explores all options before surgery. The post surgical treatment received from the doctor and the friendly service provided by his staff are excellent.”

I have had two recent ankle surgical procedures conducted by Dr Kaplan with excellent results. Both the ankle fusion and toe fusion and graft procedures have resulted in me now having pain free ankle and foot movement. Dr Kaplan and his entire surgical team were extremely skilful, professional and pleasant to deal with at all times.I have no hesitation with recommending the services of Dr Kaplan.Thankyou”

This guy performed a difficult surgery necessitating a metal plate and 13 pins to completely reconstruct my heel bone. Excuse the pun but he nailed it. Now I’m walking around again and couldn’t be happier with the service, treatment and advice. No other surgeon could have done a better job.”

David Neil

Absolutely brilliant surgeon .Excellent results on full foot/ankle reconstruction. Great function, very minimal scarring. Wonderful bedside manner. True gentleman.

Saw Dr Kaplan for a broken foot- 3 places. He saw me at short notice before Xmas, arranged MRI scans after hospital Xrays were not clear then said surgery was not the best option and referred me Physio. Although surgery would have been fully covered his patents best outcome comes first.

After failed bunion surgery on my right foot with another surgeon, I was advised by both my Podiatrist and Physio to see Dr Kaplan. Five months ago he operated on my left bunion and I had very little pain and tissue trauma.I did not have to perform any home physio and the result was so good I engaged Dr Kaplan to perform revision surgery on my right bunion three weeks ago. I have enjoyed another wonderful result and my hammertoe is finally back where it should be. Many thanks Dr Kaplan, I am delighted with my results.


Dr Kaplan recently performed corrective surgery on a severely bent big toe for me, straightening the joint so that I could walk without pain. He made it clear that the decision to proceed with surgery was mine, not his, and explained all possible outcomes clearly. He had previously performed major corrective surgery on my other foot, and in both cases I was extremely pleased with the outcome. His manner is friendly and relaxed, and the office staff could not have been more helpful. I would not hesitate to engage him again should the need arise, and would recommend him to friends and family.

After a stressful and anxious encounter with another orthopaedic surgeon who was forcing surgery onto me Dr Kaplans front desk staff asked lots of questions over the phone to direct my concerns and questions directly to Dr Kaplan late on a Friday afternoon 4:45pm to be exact. I was told Dr Kaplan will return my call before he finished for the day (safe to say I didn’t believe them) at 4:55pm I received a call from Dr Kaplan. He calmed me down and booked me in for an urgent consultation. During my consultation Dr Kaplan was very thorough, very patient, very calm and had a very pleasant nature about him which made me feel very comfortable. Rest assured if you choose Dr Kaplan you will be in great hands.

Went to Dr kaplan about 18month before my actual surgery, I did go educated on the cartiva implant for my big toe, spoke at length with him, however I wasn’t ready to proceed due to work commitments. Went back 18 months late where his explained in more detail since there was more research on this type of implant, I proceeded knowing that if it didn’t work I had a fallback option of fusing the toe. It did take around 18 months for the toe to get back to 80% movement without any pain, now best decision I’ve made, 3.5 yrs down the track perfect. He takes the time to explain everything, your options and absolutely no pressure, even gave me all the sites and more for the additional research, good and bad, he is a gentleman, great surgeon.

We try to serve best service
Foot surgery
If your condition hasn’t responded well to pain relief treatments, you may require foot surgery. The type and severity of the foot injury will determine which surgical route is most effective for you.
Ankle surgery
If you’re experiencing ankle pain or discomfort from a severe sprain, whether a severe sprain or a persistent instability, you may need ankle surgery.
Knee surgery
The knee joint is the largest in your body, responsible for supporting practically all of your body weight, though as much as three times that number during intensive running.

Great Toe Synthetic Cartilage Replacement

Cartiva is a relatively new Synthetic Cartilage Implant. It has physical properties that are very similar to normal cartilage. The clinical studies have shown that it provides equivalent pain relief to a fusion while preserving and improving motion. Also there is no period of crutches and a faster recovery. The impant can take weight immediately.
