Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

My left knee kept hyperextending when I was playing soccer or jogging. There wasn't much pain at all, it just was annoying. I assumed I had pulled something, but come to find out I had completely torn my ACL. It was a pretty clean break.

My right knee, I returned to playing soccer too early from my left knee surgery and I heard a loud audible popping sound and pain immediately rushed to my knee, leg and back. It hurt to walk, I couldn't walk on my own and the swelling started immediately. I had completely torn my right ACL, tore my posterior horn and body of the medial meniscus, sprained my fibular collateral ligament, strained the medial head of my gastrocnemius and had mild chondromalacia patella.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

The doctors explained the options for replacing my ACL and it was a hard choice but they answered all of my questions and made it all relevant to the sports I play.

Before I was heading into surgery the doctor came and explained to me what he was going to do, the staff was so incredibly nice and helped keep my mind at ease. Then my recovery was specialized to what I would need to do to return to my favorite sport, soccer.

I was in the Army in 1993 and tore my ACL during a training accident.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

Dr Warme laid out my options in layman's terms. Because of his lifestyle of rigorous physical activity he could better convey the pros and cons to my options of having surgery or not. He let ME decide what path was better for my lifestyle. I chose surgery. He emphasized the importance of physical therapy and illustrated what could happen if I didn't follow through. I did exactly what Dr Warme advised and I recuperated in no time. In fact I've been an avid runner over the years and just completed a full marathon this year. Dr Warme tells it like it is, yet is compassionate and truly cares.

Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

Sternoclavicular subluxation that began when my arm was pulled on by a patient I was treating. The pain was immediate and since it was an L&I claim I had to go the route of Physical Therapy for 4months before they decided I should see a surgeon. I had limited range of motion, pain in neck from bone pulling muscles downward, and a real nasty click and pop when either pulling my shoulders back or shrugging my shoulders.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

Dr. Warmes bedside manner is the greatest. He really took time to know who I was and showed genuine concern for what I was going through. Not only is he an amazing surgeon but he is an amazing guy all around.
