I was struck by a vehicle and ended up with a broken upper arm, both broken bones on one lower leg, multiple rib fractures, etc. Not only were the bones "broken," they were an absolute mess.

After falling off a roof and having multiple breakes in the elbow he was able to repair it and give me full function again. He is very personable and really cares how you are doing after surgery. If you ever need orthopedic surgery there is not a better doctor in my opinion!
