Patient Comments (3)
in Traverse City, MI |
he did both my hip replacements & also knee arthroscopy ; all 100% excellent outcomes I'm still active & work out 3X/week , but now I swim laps at YMCA instead of running or treadmill for cardio Dr. Brent is right ; best way to minimize osteoarthritis (which I've go lots of it) is by " maintaining-strength-across-the-joint" over full-range-of-motion ; I do that with CYBEX , 3X/week too at YMCA
in Houghton lake mi |
Dr wiersema done a wonderful job on reconstruction of my ankle,wich will make it possible for me to walk on it again,he's the reason i still have a foot,very professional and a pleasant person
in Northern MI |
Dr. Wiersema was key to me walking again. I had a major bike accident where I shattered my pelvis, broke my collar bone, had 4 broken ribs & a brain bleed, I was a challenge for any experienced doctor. After several months of rehab (land therapy & pool therapy) and nearly 100 PT sessions, I am walking again and soon my goal is to bike ride again. It would not be happening without Dr. Wiersma's expertise.
