Dr. Sim led the surgery that saved my daughter's life. At the young age of five years old, my daughter was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma in her left tibia. He replaced her tibia with a bone allograft. This surgery took place in 1989. Emily is now in her mid-30's. She is healthy and is the CEO of her own business. She has a wonderful, supportive fiance' and together they have the most beautiful four-year-old son. Dr. Sim's skill and expertise blessed Emily with a miracle. Thank you, Dr. Sim.

I first met Dr Sims in May 1981, I had been referred to him from one of his former fellows, Dr Don Brian. I had a chondrosarcoma of the left femur. I was an Orthopedic nurse at a hospital over a thousand miles away. Because of his knowledge and expertise along with his chief fellow that year Dr Gitalis and Dr Tee Clark, I am alive, intact with all limbs, had a family and have practiced as an RN for over 40 years. I rate Dr Sims as excellent!!

Dr Sim was knowledgable, courteous, personable, and professional. He performed a CT biopsy on me and eased my worries with appropriate humor and had a genuine interest in me.
