Patient: Bobby M.

Doctor: Robert Rozbruch, MD, HSS New York

The family ski trip was meant to be an opportunity for 8-yr-old Bobby to finally have a vacation after undergoing 1 ½ years of cancer treatment for neuroblastoma. Instead, on his first run down the mountain, he suffered a severe break of his left femur. After a 3-hour ambulance ride home to Long Island and an emergency surgery to place pins to stabilize the broken bone, the active second grader --- and passionate football player --- was immobilized in a wheel chair for 15 weeks.

Following months of aggressive physical therapy, it was obvious that Bobby needed further treatment. His parents consulted Dr. Robert Rozbruch, Director of the Institute for Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction at HSS who diagnosed Bobby with a leg-length discrepancy caused by the fusing of his growth plate. Bobby’s left leg would never grow on its own. Read More.

Dear Dr. Rozbruch,

As we approach my one year anniversary of the final removal of my "leg jewelry", I want to tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with my new legs. Not a single day passes that I don't think about how different I feel and I am so grateful.

Doctor: Robert Rozbruch, MD, HSS New York

Dear Dr. Rozbruch, Dustin and Staff,

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincerest thanks to you for 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.
