      Dr. Seligson has been my doctor since 1986. I was in a car accident and broke both legs and hips and lost my talus bone in my left ankle. He has brought in doctors from all over the world to view my ankle. I don't have it fused and never will but I Can Walk. He has always shown care for his patients. I would recommend him and any doctor that he has taught or worked with for any accident. Dr. Seligson will do and learn anything he can to help people.
      in Bardstown, KY |
      I had a very serious, traumatic open wound fracture. He saved my leg when others wanted to amputate. I've been a patient for almost 4 years and he has been right about everything.
      in Louisville, KY |
      Performed surgery on my right hip and left leg. Recovery has been very good. Recommend Dr. Seligson as first option for orthopedic surgery.
