Patient Comments (2)
in Galesburg, IL |
Back in November 1st 2001 I broke my pelvis in half below my spinal cord, I also broke my lower left leg in six places below the knee, my sacrum, my left hip socket. He was able to use hardware and put me back together. I am able to walk without a cane or any assistance. He saved my life. He is a great Doctor.
I would be missing the lower half of my right leg had it not been for Dr. Ruth. He's a lifesaver.
