Anthony “Bobby” Ndu, MD, orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist at Einstein Orthopedics, joined the 94WIP afternoon show with Ike Reese and Chris Carlin this week to discuss the ongoing healing process of Philadelphia 76ers’ star rookie Joel Embiid.

Listen to Dr. Ndu discuss why Embiid is still on a minutes limit, his progress and the potential risks of re-injuring his foot. The trio also touch on the 76ers’ other prized rookie, Ben Simmons, who is recovering from his own foot injury.

When will the restriction on Embiid’s minutes be lifted? Will Simmons be back in January? Should he sit out the entire season? Listen below for those answers and more.

Dr. Ndu is fellowship trained in foot and ankle surgery and has special expertise in diabetic foot treatment, ankle replacement, fore, mid- and hindfoot reconstruction and deformity reconstruction. He has convenient office hours at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, Einstein Medical Center Elkins Park and Einstein Healthcare Network Holmesburg.
