I can't thank you enough for the surgery you did to reconstruct my ankle, which wasn't an easy task! I had a total of 6 operations on my leg over that period but the ankle reconstruction was the most complicated. 9 years on I am able to walk completely unaided even if a few movements are a bit restricted. If you hadn't taken the initiative when I came to you and noticed that something wasn't right with my ankle and gone on to do such a great job, my life would've been much more restricted. I am so grateful to you.
