Michael Fenner, Queens, NY – ankle fusion surgery
There was a time when I thought I’d never walk again. I became really depressed. It's hard to accept that as a former professional athlete, I would not be able to walk, run or exercise again. I met Dr. Austin T. Fragomen and he spent the time needed to change my mind-set about surgery. I know I was difficult but he hung in there with me. He performed the fusion surgery to repair my ankle successfully. I will never forget him, or what I experienced. Doc, keep doing what you're doing.
