"My game is not a sport. It's the game of life. I have an autoimmune disease called myositis. My treatment includes oral prednisone and monthly infusions of IVIG. When I first got sick almost 20 years ago I was 44. I was an elementary school teacher but had to leave due to extreme weakness in my arms and legs. I could barely walk or bathe myself. I refused to just give in to the disease and view my life as over. "
"Hi Dr. Rozbruch, I Can't thank you enough! The Min and Max are insignificant and my right leg and left leg are within 1 percent which is well under the standard normal difference. As a cyclist I thought you would appreciate this, and as you being my Orthopedic Surgeon I can't tell you how much this old guy appreciates you! "
"Since my total hip replacement I have gone skiing, played ice hockey, surfed, and I just returned from a hiking and fishing expedition in Olympic Park. None of these activities had been possible prior to my surgery, but now I enjoy them all with absolutely no pain."
"A few years ago I started seeing Dr James. Wyss for constant sciatic pain. He did several epidurals and I did some PT. I was very nervous about the epidurals but Dr. Wyss is a master, there was little to no discomfort. Unfortunately, the pain remained. Dr Wyss recommended I see Dr. Matthew Cunningham. Dr. Cunningham explained why a fusion was what I needed and we scheduled the surgery. I asked Dr. Cunningham when I could plan a big trip and he recommended one year post op."
