PODIATRISTS AND HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS
IL Podiatrist Makes Multiple Medical Missions to Mexico
 
About one child in every 55,000 live births is born with an ankle deformity, something that podiatrist Dr. Paul Bishop of the Foot and Ankle Centers in Yorkville and Morris is working to fix. As a leader at the Chicago Lower Extremity Surgical Foundation (CLESF), he and several other doctors make multiple trips to Mexico throughout the year, to perform reconstructive surgeries on children and adults, in many cases helping them to take their first steps.
 
Dr. Paul Bishop
 
Bishop first became involved in the CLESF about 10 years ago, after completing a fellowship with Dr. Edgardo R. Rodriguez, co-founder of the CLESF. “After I was doing my training with Dr. Rodriguez, he invited me on board at the foundation...ever since then, we’ve been going from once to even three, four, or five times a year,” he said.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NON-CLINICAL)
From: Walter Roth, DPM, Adam Siegel, DPM
 
I have two identical digital x-ray systems and dropped the support about a year ago. I have had no issues with the x-ray hardware or software. I have had an occasional communication problem between the acquisition computer and server when Windows installs automatic updates, but this has been rectified every time by simply restarting the server which I run full time.
 
Walter Roth, DPM, Lake Mary, FL
 
I have had software issues associated with my imaging software. The unit and server are only a year old. Magically, at around the one year mark (when the warranty for the software expires), there is an issue with the server that requires occasional phone calls to support. Unfortunately, only by calling them will the issue be fixed and they have been unable to explain the reason the issue continues to re-appear. I find it unusual and coincidental that there is a software glitch that only they can fix. For a device that costs that much money, the support should be included, or at least bug-free.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NEWS STORIES)
From: Jeffrey Kass, DPM
 
I would like to congratulate Dr. Reilly-Fallon, a classmate of mine. She has appeared in PM News regularly as a selfless individual who is involved in various charitable organizations. A true "menchette" (female mench) who deserves to be applauded for her good-hearted work.
