My Approach to Care

My passion and focus is patient care. I am committed to patient education and clear communication to identify the best treatments to suit each patient’s lifestyle. Whenever possible, my focus is to optimize non-surgical treatments. When surgery is required, I approach surgery with meticulous attention to detail to achieve desired outcomes.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Foot and ankle injuries and fractures
  • Sports medicine
  • Foot and ankle reconstruction
  • Arthritis
  • Instability
  • Acquired deformities – a change in the normal size or shape of a body part as a result of injury, infection, arthritis or tumor
  • Pediatrics
  • Complex deformity correction
  • Total ankle replacement

Dr. So is extensively involved in research to improve patient care. He has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters. Currently, he leads several projects aimed at lowering infection rates after total ankle replacement and investigating bone health and osteoporotic fractures of the foot and ankle. He is involved in several ongoing multi-center clinical trials. He has advanced training in foot and ankle surgery by completing a fellowship at the renowned CORE Institute. He has performed over 50 total ankle replacement surgeries. He stays up to date with cutting edge technology and recent advancements in medicine, and utilizes evidence-based medicine to deliver individualized patient care.

This was my second appointment with Dr. So. His attentive, calming, and knowledgeable demeanor ensured me that what I need done in the future, I will without a doubt put my care in his hands.
January 10, 2022
I was very put at ease by D. So's manner...he was an excellent listener and explained procedures well and he fixed me up with a brace that is working well...I am very grateful,to br on a road to recovery!!! Thank you ?
January 06, 2022
Loved my experience and felt very cared for! Thank you!
January 03, 2022
All of the medical staff were great; friendly, welcoming, and competent.
January 03, 2022
I guess the only thing I can say about the only rebuttal I would have would be that. I wanted my place to do a scan which I know it's not called the CAT scan but anyways, I just wanted to get scan to see if there was any kind of muscle structures of how to place something like that because you said I had a fracture something like a fractured bone or something but I don't believe that because I don't know. I just know whenever break so let's put it that way alright, otherwise, I would have never been hit by the 21 cars and still survive let's put it that way so that's the only thing I can say about that and so that's why I wanted my cat scan on my foot see if it was just muscle structure that was out of place or maybe just, you know, like a sore muscles like some type of muscle that might have been out and that's why it's bruise or it just could be an infection and I don't know about it and I just need antibiotics.
December 30, 2021
Dr. So cares about my feet, but he also cares about me as a person.
December 27, 2021
My experience with capital foot and ankle was excellent. From the first appointment to last I felt like my healthcare needs were met!
December 14, 2021
Upon arriving, I was pleasantly and promptly greeted by a front desk staff member. I signed the necessary documents and was asked to have a seat. I was called back within a few minutes. The CMA was also pleasant and we reviewed my meds before she took me for x-rays of my feet. A few minutes later, I was discussing my concerns with Dr. So. He was professional and really took the time to answer my questions and educate me on what the surgery and recovery would entail. I am very happy I chose Dr. So and Capital Foot!
December 13, 2021
Dr So is very thoughtful, listens effectively, and provided care and instructions that will help me heal.
December 10, 2021
I was very pleased with the entire staff and Dr. So, all were professional and let me know all options and what to expect after surgery.
December 07, 2021
Dr. So was fantastic! He was attentive, thorough, humble and answered all of my questions. I will definitely recommend him in the future to anyone and everyone!
November 18, 2021
The doctor could not pull up my old records from the old clinic to compare my X-ray results or see last visit notes from when I was seen last at Capital foot and Ankle at old location! That was surprising and would have been appreciated and appropriate to give good care!
November 08, 2021
I had a very good experience, I hardly had any swelling and I really had a really good outcome so far, but I was very pleased with everything and they kept giving me (INAUDIBLE) shots and try as long as I needed them. And I really appreciated that.
November 04, 2021
Thank you for the attention you had for me. God bless you, goodbye.
November 01, 2021
I appreciated his knowledge, his compassion, and his thoroughness.
November 01, 2021
Dr. So was doing a great job and her staff. He was doing excellent. Thank you so much for all hard work you do. Thank you. Thank you.
October 28, 2021
Excellent medical care in Lincoln Nebraska. I am very grateful.
October 26, 2021
My experience with this provider was excellent. It was a very nice... ready, ready to go, and to discover more that I needed to know about my problem, and he was very sympathetic and very nice to me, and he used his time freely to tell me what I needed to know, and asked me to make my next appointment to follow up on everything that I had asked. And so, I wanted to thank him and I was very confident that my next session would be even better than this.
October 26, 2021
He did it great
October 25, 2021
Hello, nurse was very organized and got everything ready for Dr. So and when he came in, he was very professional and educated us on what was going to happen, and we had a very good experience.
October 21, 2021
Dr. So had a lot of Charisma, and he was a good listener. Thank you.
October 18, 2021
I was placed in a "boot". It would have been helpful if the nurse would have given us better instructions about how to put the boot on when I needed to do it by myself. It took several tries before I could get it right.
October 12, 2021
Waiting for more information from Cindy on my visit as we discussed surgery and will need more information to get the plan in motion.
October 12, 2021
Terrible location,,very difficult for patients that struggle with mobility. The previous location was far better. Would not recommend this Dr office because of the location, the care is wonderful, not the location..
October 11, 2021
Doctor and staff were very professional and competent. Problem was addressed and treated.
October 07, 2021
I'd like you to know how much I think of Dr. So he met me at the hospital. Preformed, the surgery, two and a half hour later. I was out of surgery and I am on my way to Healing. I am positive of it. Thank you.
October 07, 2021
Dr. So was very professional and knowledgeable. And Nadine's care was wonderful. In fact I made another appointment with Nadine for November.
September 28, 2021
Very good and kind doctor!!!
September 27, 2021
Quick, professional, friendly
September 27, 2021
Waiting a long time to be seen but the doctor listened and explained things very well. It is great to have an answer to an ailment.
September 24, 2021
I wish I'd made this appointment sooner! I bet all of your new patients say that.
September 23, 2021
I was very impressed with the care I received. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. So was great! He explained everything very well and asked if I had questions. He listened to me! I didn't feel rushed like I do with so many other doctors. He made me feel as if I was his only patient and he had all the time in the world to tend to my needs.
September 20, 2021
It is so refreshing to meet, and be treated by, a kind, professional, understanding expert.
September 20, 2021
Dr. So listened to me and was very caring in his treatment to my foot pain. He provided me with information and different options to my treatment.
September 17, 2021
Dr. So was willing to listen to my concerns and talk about options. Which I appreciate.
September 13, 2021
Dr. So is all around amazing!!! Thanks for everything looking forward to better health and my foot will give me a higher level of my yoga experience!!!
August 31, 2021
My daughter brought me to your office for an appt. on Tues. Morning, Aug. 31st. Megan, the nurse was in my room almost right away taking my blood pressure, etc. Very kind and then Dr. So came in to examine my infected fungus toe nail and said he felt we should proceed with removing the toe nail right away. I had not taken my Eliquis blood thinner thinking maybe they would néed to remove it again! I had been started on an Antibiotic by Dr. Cui at Urgent Care the night before. He recommended calling your office & get worked in the next day. We are thankful you worked us in right away. Thank you for your kind & prompt care. Was very pleased & soaked this morning & ready to do that again now. Also elevating which makes it feel good, too.
August 30, 2021
My experience from start to finish was great. Dr So explained the XRays in detail, with a recommendation to correct the foot problem. The only thing that causes me concern is the $450+ approximate cost of orthotics. This strains the budget for a retired individual. Other than that, the appointment went very well.
August 26, 2021
You need to know - I am 71 years old & this was my first visit with Eric So, DPM so there was no way he would be familiar with any of my medical history. However - during our visit he allowed me time to provide it as it is important to me and my particular reason for asking to be seen at Capital Foot & Ankle. My request for an appointment was responded to quickly. I was seen quite soon after the initial request. Dr. Eric and the staff at CF&A were extraordinarily thorough - and patient with me (I tend to "run on" with my explanations). My questions were thoughtfully answered and my concerns addressed. I will be scheduled for "quality of life" (elective) surgery with Dr. Eric in the near future. I am completely confident the result will provide the result he and I hope to achieve.
August 26, 2021
Absolutely amazing service. Thank you so much!
August 23, 2021
Hi like Dr. So, so much. He not even not only looked at my foot, but he told me where to go for my elbow, Dr. Byington. He referred me to that wonderful doctor. And I thank you, I will be there again. Definitely anytime I have a foot issue I will be seeing Dr. So. Thank you very much and have a blessed day.
August 20, 2021
Great care
August 20, 2021
Dr So recognized the problem, explained it well and told me the options for care. Everyone was friendly and helpful-thankful I went there. A+
August 17, 2021
When I had surgery with Dr. So I just thought he was very Informative, he spoke my language, he didn't dumb it down, but it didn't sound confusing either. He just made it very easy to understand and he's very relatable, easy to talk to and I just had an overall good experience. Now I have had surgery before,(INAUDIBLE) when I was young. I don't even really remember it. So as far as I'm concerned, this to me appears to be my first surgery and you know, I thought it went very well. He calms a lot of anxiety,answered a lot of the questions and was very helpful overall. Thank you.
August 16, 2021
I believe Dr So and his staff are wonderful. I would totally recommend them to others. ??????
August 03, 2021
This Practice is excellent all around!
August 02, 2021
I was excited that Dr. So knew what was wrong and could show me/explain what was going on. He also told me about any next steps and what might happen. The front desk lady and Meghan were super nice too. :)
July 30, 2021
Was disappointed that I couldn't get in until mid-September to get orthotics for my painful foot.
July 16, 2021
Dr So was great! He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and took his time.
July 09, 2021
My doctor said it was very important that I start taking a prescribed antibiotic that was supposed to be sent to Walgreens. It has not been sent to Walgreens and I'm not taking antibiotic because it's not available because it wasn't called in.
July 09, 2021
The nurse that came and got got, it was on the ball, she was quick and fast and doing what she was doing needed to do, and she got the X-ray quickly, and we came right back to the room, and she, she just she knew ... you felt confident in her, because she was confident That's, that's what I had to say about the nurse I guess, and the doctor was very easy to talk to and he did sit with us a little bit. He gave you a chance to say something to tell him a little bit more about yourself. So he knew about you a little more and that was good. so, I guess that's all I've got to say about it was good and didn't have no complaints so.
July 08, 2021
While the wait was kind of long, the receptionist was very kind.
July 06, 2021

The office staff was very friendly and it was easy to make a scheduled appointment. And then I had to call back and reschedule, and that was easy to do, speaking and in person at the office with the team, and the doctor was easy as well. Overall a great experience.
June 17, 2021
The doctor's real nice to me but I didn't get enough information about my leg. I know he wants me to go through surgery but I didn't have enough information. How long it would take to heal? And what, whatever.
June 15, 2021
Yes, I would like to know the cost of the the foot brace before I try it out because it may be a brace that my insurance company will not pay for and then I'm stuck with the bill. So I think you should inform consumers what The cause of the foot brace is going to be? Because I'm on the budget and I need to know. Thank you.
June 10, 2021
All good.
May 28, 2021
Fast, Friendly and Helpful
May 27, 2021

The shots in my toe hurt like hell, find a better way of numbing my sore toe. And prescribe at least 1 pain pill for the first 12 hours. After that my toe didnt hurt so much.
May 20, 2021

My daughter went in (grandpa took her) with planters warts that HURT and we wanted removed. provider would not do it.
April 06, 2021
The trash receptacle in the room was overflowing from the previous patient so when they rolled it over to use during my son's procedure I thought it should've been removed before hand.
March 29, 2021
Dr. So was amazing and did an awesome job going through the treatment and everything that I needed to do on my end. His nursing tech and front desk people were amazing as well.
March 26, 2021
I thought my experience was pretty good. However, I did think I did have quite a pain with it. So I don't know how we could improve on that. But I experienced quite a bit of pain during the procedure. But everyone was real pleasant about it. But yeah, so that's it.
March 18, 2021
I think it was very strange to wait until one and half and we still did the person who supposed to see us.
March 15, 2021
Well, I didn't get any explanation of about what to do afterwards, and I don't understand why we took the whole phone and I love. I just felt like it was a very unsuccessful appointment.

It would be nice if we got a paper hand out of instructions. Things to do, things not to do, as it's really hard to remember everything that we're told in the office. But everyone was very pleasant. Very nice.
February 23, 2021
Dr. So was the provider that has helped me through multiple new diagnosis that i am trying to cope with. He has been nothing but kind, compassionate, and patient with me throughout all needs. I feel like as a provider he is very educational with the way he explains what is going on and what is to come. I appreciate him and his nurse more than he knows! Thank you so much you two. You both have really made an impact on how i have been dealing with such loss of movement to now ALMOST being able to walk comfortably!

Eric's, Dr. So was really awesome, really professional. Builds a really great friendly rapport, really listened to me. Especially when I'm talking about pain and everything, which is really important for provide a health care provider. The only thing I would say and comment in the negative way would not be about him, but would be about this the survey in general. It's just a really long and monotonous. And has, it over explains and, but Dr. So is awesome.
February 01, 2021
`After checking in the hall to reach my provider is too long for anyone with a foot problem!
