Love him! He helped us by amputating my daughter's legs at 6 months of age. Very caring! Listened and spent lots of time with us. Fantastic surgeon. No revisions ever needed. Minimal scarring. Highly recommend. He welcomed consulting specialists around the country prior to our decision to amputate. She is doing great!

Dr. Fisk has left me with a lifetime of pain due to a failed spinal fusion. He used a cadaver bone without getting my approval beforehand and then didn't put a plate in to secure the bone and sent me back to work after only a month, even though it is recommended to not return to active work for 6 months. He also said I could do anything but tackle football (his words). The bone herniated again and he did nothing for 6 mos. and the damage was irreversible. Don't use this doctor!!
