“Dr. Rudzki and his staff handled my surgery and recovery with dedicated professionalism, care, kindness, and support. From providing detailed information and valuable resources beginning with my first appointment, on through personalized follow up visits, and finally a regime of suggested recovery activities, I could not have asked for a better outcome. I would highly recommend Dr. Rudzki and WOSM to anyone with a sports injury! After fracturing my collarbone a second time in less than one year’s time, I thought contact sports would no longer be a part of my life, but after speaking with Dr. Rudzki and learning his surgical philosophy of not just patching up a patient so they can live pain free day to day, but seeing the person, how they live their life, and getting them back to whatever their passion may be, I knew it would only be a matter of time. Thanks to Dr. Rudzki, his exceptional surgical skills and recommended recovery program, I am back to doing what I love and confident that I am as strong as ever.”
“I think it’s worth mentioning that after having surgery in March 2010, I was back to downhill skiing in January 2011. I’ve been astounded at how little the injury impacts my daily life; I haven’t hesitated to do anything, and have been so thankful for finding such a skilled surgeon and physical therapy team!
It’s been just over 7 years since surgery, and while recovery felt like a long process at the time, doing it right has made all the difference. In addition to returning to roller derby, I’ve run countless races (including 3 half marathons, and my hardest yet – a 5k yesterday at 6 months pregnant!), completed my scuba certification, kayaked and canoed, went on a three week trek in the Himalayas, skiing trips (downhill and x-country), ran fitness classes and boot camps with US Marines, completed two international moves (and am working on a third – currently in the process of moving back overseas to India)…and I haven’t set off one metal detector :). I’m also able to keep up with my toddler, which is pretty exhausting!”
Our team works collaboratively with patients to solve problems. One of the best parts of this process is the relationship that forms moving forward as we periodically stay in touch to share in the great moments that follow recovery.
