Peter G. Mangone M.D.
Ankle, Foot, Sports Medicine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Mangone.
“I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Mangone. He provided me relief on my feet and I can walk like a normal human being again! He was sincere, kind, knowledgable, skilled, and a great communicator. I knew exactly what to expect before, during, and after surgery. His follow up was exceptional. I truly appreciate him and am grateful to have him as my surgeon.”
– Richard T.
“Dr. Pete Mangone is not only a truly brilliant and gifted surgeon but is a pleasure to talk to. He is the perfect combination of a stellar surgeon with a warm friendly professional bedside manner. Dr. Mangone patiently went through all of my options with me and quickly and correctly diagnosed what was wrong with my foot the first visit. He listened to my many questions and concerns and is genuinely concerned for me as a patient. He is prompt to see me on time in the office and is highly efficient with his time and mine. My surgery was a success and I got my quality of life back quickly after suffering 2 and 1/2 years of agonizing foot pain and swelling, amongst other unpleasant symptoms. Dr. Mangone set realistic goals for me and explained what to expect post operatively at different phases of my recovery. He performed my foot surgery arthroscopically, but also had to make a small incision to gain better surgical exposure. Being female (and not a fan of scars) I appreciate that he did such an awesome job with my sutures it is almost unnoticeable where he operated. I wish I had not waited as long as I did to be referred to him. I can not say enough about what an incredibly positive experience being a patient of Dr. Mangone has been and continues to be! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and left foot! It is truly wonderful to be able to do not only the activities of daily living again but to participate and enjoy the things I took for granted, like wearing my "cute shoes" again, exercising, and playing with my dogs. It is a blessing to have my life back!”

“I slipped in my driveway in red clay mud and broke my right ankle in two places and also my right lower leg in two places. I called the office and they got me in right a way and scheduled me for surgery as soon as they could. I thank God for Dr. Mangone, I was in so much pain and didn't know what to do or who to turn to. BRBJ treats me like family and they are very understanding. They listen to what I have to say and let me fully explain any concerns I have. I sincerely highly recommend them to anyone, They are AWESOME !!!!”

– Paul R.
“He is a genius, gentleman, has a fantastic bedside manner, and is the epitome of what a perfect orthopod should be. He is one of the top surgeons in the world and I am privileged to be his patient. He figured out what an MRI missed on my foot, and if he had not I would have lost my quality of life. He is a Godsend and represents what stellar surgeons from his training period strive to be. I wish they could train the new generation like him! He is the best and world class! We are beyond lucky and blessed to have him in our area. he has made a significant contribution to every patients’ life. Love him!”

“Dr. Mangone and Blue Ridge Bone & Joint are the best! I had continual problems with the formation of an ulcer on the first metatarsal on one foot, due to genetic foot structure. I made numerous trips to my podiatrist and was frequently taking antibiotics for an infection. Dr. Mangone was able to assess the problem and explain how he could surgically alter my foot to relieve pressure on the metatarsal. It’s been almost five months since the surgery, and no more ulcers!! I’ve continued the exercises prescribed in physical therapy, and have made significant progress. I’ve even been able to start back with some easy hikes! My thanks to Dr. Mangone and his exceptional staff!”
– Kathryn W.

“I have been pleased with Dr. Peter Mangone. His demeanor and explanation of difficulties are exceptional. He is truly a leader in his field of foot and ankle surgery. My surgery and rehabilitation have been as he had predicted. I am on my way to regaining some function of my ankle, where I had previously envisioned my retirement years as being less than fruitful with chronic pain and dysfunction to my ankle. Have had absolutely no regrets or second thoughts in selecting Doctor Mangone for my care.”
– David L.
“Dr. Mangone is very knowledgeable and friendly. He did a great job of assessing my ankle issues and performing a successful surgery.”
– Steve D.
“In February, Dr. Mangone performed his second Achilles insertional debridement and repair for me. Eight years previous on the left Achilles and now the right. I would rate both experiences as exceptional for pre-op consultation, surgical quality, and post-operative care. Dr. Mangone and his staff are consummate professionals offering superior knowledge and compassionate care. We are fortunate to have this world-class orthopedic surgeon located in the Western NC region. Last year when my granddaughter ruptured her Achilles during gymnastics competition, there was no question as to whom we would entrust to perform her surgery. Thank you, Dr. Mangone and Jennifer, for taking prodigious care of both of us. In conclusion, I offer my highest recommendation for this medical group regardless of whether you are like me an age advantaged curmudgeon with high mileage or like my granddaughter the world's most beautiful gymnast.”

“Dr. Mangone surgically repaired the ruptured Achilles on my right ankle in late January. By the first of March I began PT at the Hendersonville facility under George Floyd and Tyler Collie which continued twice a week for the next six months until I was released in late August. The eight-month process to take me back to full recovery was completed professionally with care and patience as this being, what I considered, a moderately severe injury for a man 74 years old. Dr. Mangone checked me on a routine basis while I continued my PT every week. As I spent about 50 hours in PT. I want to thank George Floyd for his unique and uplifting leadership but also Tyler Collie who took on the nuts and bolts of getting me back to walking normally, week after week until I strode out of the Hendersonville facility. As if I'd never been injured, and released officially by Dr. Mangone a month later. Thanks to all of you.”

“I had excellent referrals before seeing Dr. Mangone. My first visit made me feel very optimistic that my medical condition could be corrected. Our consultations were lengthy, and I found Dr. Mangone wanted me to understand the entire process especially the expectations that I would experience during my recovery process. My ability to communicate questions in-between appointments via email was promptly answered by either Dr. Mangone or his staff. I was adequately prepared for all expectations postoperative. The results have changed my life entirely, I was born with Polio and never had a flat foot in my 64 yrs. I have had to have orthopedic shoe wear my entire life to correct the curvature of my right foot and the differences in leg length as results of the Polio. I no longer need corrections to my footwear, and my foot is for the first time in my life is flat and straight. Dr. Mangone's ability to correct my problem has created a new lifestyle for me, and I want to Thank him.”

He also treated my Achilles tendinitis problem and that also improved so it does not limit me like it once did. I feel I got the optimum result from my surgery and treatment.”
– Bob K.
