After two failed ankle surgeries over a 3 year period, I had just about lost all hope of ever walking normally again, let alone playing sports. After speaking with a friend who knew Dr. O'Malley, I decided to drive two hours into the city to see if there was any way of getting back to my normal self. I didn’t know what to expect, as my previous surgeons were difficult. But I knew right from the first visit that I was in good hands.

Dr O'Malley was kind, upfront, thorough and generous with his time. There were unforeseen complications with my foot after surgery, none of which made much sense clinically. He kept at it, had other surgeons look at my foot, and after beyond thorough work, pinpointed the main issue. 9 months later, I was at the starting line of the Boston Marathon.

Dr O'Malley is a world-class surgeon, one who operates on the whose who of athletes. But, he treats everyone the same and that’s what makes him such a special doc. I will be forever indebted.
