I underwent hammer toe surgery by Dr. Utley on my right foot in June 2007 and after the bandages were removed, it looked like no surgery had been done at all on that toe. In fact, my toe is in worse shape than before the surgery. It looks like a claw and bends toward the third toe. I asked him on a follow-up visit after the surgery why this happened and his response was, "There could be a zillion reasons." Well, that doesn't answer my question. I believe he botched the surgery and didn't want to admit it. Personally, I liked him. He's pleasant and attractive, and he has a good office staff. However, that doesn't help much when my time and money were wasted on the surgery and I am in pain every day and night. Also, Summerlin Hospital charged me $900.00 out-of-pocket after Medicare insurance paid the hospital. It's been nearly five years since the surgery and my left foot has had to compensate for the lack of stablility in my right foot, which has resulted in debilitating, chronic pain in both feet. He performed a bunionectomy at the same time, and that went well, but that's a much easier procedure to perform than hammer toe surgery. I would recommend Dr. Utley for simple procedures only. Also, I'm curious as to why his education background cannot be found on the Internet. It's important for everyone to know where doctors received their education, internship and residency.
