Here are some of our favorites.
I will be having a major surgery shortly. I have had several appointments with Dr. Ratusznik and I am very impressed with his bedside manner. He has explained everything in detail on what to expect. I will post more after the surgery, but you don't find many doctors with his kindness and skill.

I sustained a fractured femur on new years eve. Went to Hughley ER. I was seen by Dr. Thomas there and had surgery the next day. Working in healthcare for 48 years I knew a little about the surgery, but when you are on the other side you are at their mercy. Have to say Dr. Thomas was the kindest, most skilled surgeon I have ever met in the field of orthopaedics. My family just loved him. Had very little pain after the procedure and none in rehab. Already up and walking with a cane. Dr. Thomas has such a gentle bedside manner – takes all the time in the world to answer your questions and is very reassuring.

It is unbelievable to think that I am pain-free after all those years. By the time I was 22, my left hip was filled with arthritis. Sports were out of the question, even simple things like jogging and golfing. In the meantime, I put up with the pain and led a boring lifestyle. Eventually my right hip, which I favored because my left hip was so bad, began hurting too. I finally made an appointment with a Stryker orthopaedic specialist. It's been 15 months since my two total hip replacements, and my life has improved tremendously. I no longer take painkillers. I'm able to do more things. I play golf. I walk more. I recently started horseback riding. And the best thing is, I'm pain-free.
