Thank you for taking such amazing care of me. We had several zoom calls together before and after my trip, and when the day came for me to travel to Boulder, you made arrangements for a driver to pick us up at the airport, and you had a driver take us back to the airport a few days later! The location of the hotel directly across from the surgery center meant that I could walk to the surgery, and afterwards, I was able to easily get back to our room for recovery. Leading up to the surgery, I was very nervous. Knowing that I was about to have a "osteotomy of the second metatarsal" on both feet, I was sure that I would have to spend several months in a wheelchair. I could not believe it when I was able to WALK out of surgery under my own power! You are truly a very skilled master at what you do, and I am SO lucky to have had you as my surgeon. I'm still amazed at how fast the recovery was. 6 weeks after surgery I was out hiking for the first time in YEARS!!
Thank you both so much for all that you do. I imagine that there are times when you go to work and, because for you it's "just another day", you might occasionally lose sight of the impact that you have on your patient's lives.
So I want you to know that the impact you've had on THIS life is completely transformational. For the first time in 20+ years I have NO foot pain. I had forgotten what it was like to not have pain. Now I can get back to living, hiking and playing with my grand-daughters.
