Eric

Profession: Government
Doctor: Branford Henley, MD

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

Had a freak motorcycle accident involving an elevated manhole above street grade making a left hand turn. The accident caused my ankle to dislocate with multiple fractures. Initial trip to the ER the ankle was reset and four days later I had my surgery slated for only 1-2 hours but once the Dr. Henley and the Ortho Red team opened the ankle up they realized it was going to take a bit longer.

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

Dr. Henley and the Ortho Red Team made sure my ankle was put back together almost as perfect as it was before. Their dedication to healing has already allowed me to return to soccer in just over 6 months since the accident.
