The injury was so serious that one of Dr. Rozbruch's fellows told me later that he did not think my leg would heal. Well, using an Ilizarov fixator, Dr. Rozbruch worked a miracle and I healed beautifully. Not only that, but also out of curiosity, Dr. Rozbruch took an x-ray of an old serious injury to my left tibia, and right before I went in for my operation on my right leg, he told me I needed to fix my left leg too or I would be sorry when I was older. In June 2011, Dr. Rozbruch did reconstructive surgery on my left leg to straighten out my leg from an old injury. I had fixators on both legs for several months.
Dr. Rozbruch gave me my life back. I have returned to serious rock, ice, and Alpine climbing. I play soccer and am even running twenty miles a week – with no ill effects! Dr. Rozbruch is the Man!
