Patient Stories
  • Brayden Testimonial

    Brayden suffered a comminuted (shattered) clavicle (collarbone) fracture and underwent surgery to repair it. This is him only a short time after surgery.

  • F.G. Testimonial

    Hello from Beijing! Look what I did today! It was spectacular! A gorgeous crisp Autumn day as we hiked a lesser visited section of The Great Wall. My knees held up great! Thanks so much for your support & working with me to get these knees in good shape for this special day that I have dreamed of since 6th grade! I hiked to the 20th watch tower, which is the farthest tourists can go on this section.

  • S.B. Testimonial

    “Thank you for giving me my knee back.” She’s a young mom who was in constant pain because of a cartilage defect on her patella (kneecap). I did an Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation on her patella (ACI) where we took a sample of her own cartilage and grew it in a lab and put it back in her knee. We also shifted her kneecap (tibial tubercle osteotomy) so it would not cause future issues.

  • Patient Stories

    Active lady who had severe right knee arthritis and varus (bow-legged) deformity prior to surgery. We corrected her alignment and arthritis with a robotic assisted partial knee replacement done as an outpatient surgery. She is feeling great after only 6 weeks. On the photos the right knee appears on the left (mirror), the pre-surgery and post-surgery photos show correction of varus (bow-legged) deformity.

  • M.S. Testimonial

    I definitely did not forget that I would let you know how the Chicago Marathon turned out and thanks to you putting up with my requests (No, I can’t rest the hamstring – I need to run this marathon!) — I did complete the marathon! I wanted you to know how appreciative I am of your patience, and expertise and willingness to treat me like an athlete rather than just an older runner. You and your staff are fantastic!.
