Patient Comments (2)
Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Wiss is caring, and has the experience and expertise necessary to repairing complex fractures. He corrected a non-union of my ulna that entailed a graft from my iliac. Had I found him for the original procedure, the graft likely would not have been necessary. As he reviewed the pre- and post-surgical x-rays, it was clear that his procedure was superior to the original, providing complete stabilization of the bone and enabling full use. An excellent surgeon.

As a doctor myself, I want to thank him for saving my horribly mutilated and broken leg. Many other surgeons failed to successfully mend it, but Dr. Wiss repaired it his first attempt. I am now walking and even running again. I have even done gentle skiing on it. Dr. Wiss is a genius and is in a class all by himself. My highest recommendation. Craig Gordon DMD
