I work in construction, fell fifteen feet straight down onto a concrete pad while setting windows in a snowstorm. In retrospect it was not a good idea, but at the time it was necessary. At the time Dr. Zimmer commented it was the worst heel fracture he had seen. The good doctor installed a plate and nine screws in my heel; a bone the size of a golf ball. While he cautioned me recovery may not be complete. I walk, I work, and I'm grateful every day for his knowledge and expertise. T Stanley

Excellent diagnostician. Excellent surgeon-he cleaned up my messed up ankle -did not recommend fusion. Thank goodness. I was 73 years old- another surgeon recommended fusion based on my age! Not dr Zimmer -he was great! Three years later - still doing great.
