I needed 2 surgeries within 2 days because of a fractured hip. My ICU nurse and my med surg nurse said the exact same thing. "If I had your fractures I wouldn't want anyone else operating on me." Comforting words to hear during my ordeal. Surgeries went perfectly. Grateful for Dr Laura Prokuski.

Following a serious slip and fall with multiple fractures in my right arm, I needed an experienced Trauma Surgeon. Having never broken a bone in my 65 years of age, I had no idea where to begin. Fortunately my search was over after my initial appointment with Dr. Laura Prokuski, she possesses the knowledge, experience, confidence, sensitivity, honesty and thorough explanations that I desperately needed to proceed. Her skilled hands put me back together and allowed me to enjoy an active life!!
