Conifer, CO |
In 1988 I was diagnosed with a grapefruit sized osteo sarcoma tumor in my hip. During the surgery to remove this cancer I lost my left iliac crest and a major portion of my hip socket. Any other doctor on the planet would have removed my entire left leg as well (because I no longer had a viable hip socket) but Dr. Malawer had engineered a unique technique for reattaching my leg by anchoring the bone to ligaments, sparing me the loss of limb. I am forever grateful for his amazing ingenuity.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
