I recommend him. My total ankle from another physician was failing. Every other doctor just wanted to fuse my ankle. My revision total ankle is 2 years out and I'm doing so much better. Walking with minimal discomfort.

I have been a patient at SCOS since 2004 and have undergone several experimental surgeries that have been lifesaving to me. Two whole human ankle transplants, and now I have a completely artificial ankle. Dr Brage and Dr Aminian literally have saved my life and removed about 90 percent of the pain I was experiencing. I can’t say enough positive things about this clinic...from working with insurance to ease of scheduling appointments to the providers and techs. Fantastic staff.

Had appt with Dr Barge. Saw him for 2 minutes,his charge $500 ????? Took 2hrs 30 minutes for cast to be put on. Too many casts scheduled for that time. Everyone was upset. Finally another dr came in ,she was nice.

Dr Brage is negligent and irresponsible, STAY FAR AWAY FROM HIM. The 1st surgery, he fused my toe jutting in a downward position and left hardware inside. 2nd surgery he forgot to close the wound which led to removing the fat pad causing severe nerve damage/pain. He has an awful personality and horrible record. 3rd surgery, 2 other dr's at UW attempted to fix the nerve damage and bone issues due to his terrible surgical abilities. Dr Brage is inept, arrogant and negligent. He destroyed my foot.

Dr. Brage can barely spend more than 30 seconds with you. He made a poor decision on my injury that delayed my recovery by months. I wish I had done more research before I saw him.

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Brage. I had complications following a surgery he performed, and found him to be very resistant to my concerns. Getting information from him was like pulling teeth! He spent very little time with me over the course of 12(!) post-op visits (one consultation was literally less than a minute). I ended up needing two more surgeries with full anesthesia (different doc) and 3 in-office procedures to repair his work.
