Patient Testimonials

Patient: Michael, V.
Doctor: Robert Rozbruch, MD, HSS New York

Dear Dr. Rozbruch, Dustin and Staff,

Michael VI would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincerest thanks to you all of the wonderful care to which I received over the past year. I came to your offices pretty banged up, bowed legs, cartilage worn to the bone after 3 medial meniscus surgeries and in constant pain in both knees. Many doctors took one look at me and said I needed double knee replacements at age 46 and that I would never run again. Dr. Rozbruch gave me the option of undergoing a high tibia osteotomy of both legs to correct my bowed legs.

Both surgeries were a complete success and I not only have been able to live pain free but I can run again. Just 5 months after my last external fixator was removed I competed in several races including a Half Ironman Triathlon, which consists of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 run. I had a great race, placing 5th in my age group and 50th overall out of 1000 competitors. I have enclosed a picture taken during that race. Thanks to Dr. Rozbruch and his staff, my future in racing is bright and I am now training for my eleventh full Ironman in 2012.
