I'm so glad you found me!

I'm half way through re-growing cartilage to preserve my subtalar joint.  In the past 3 months I have met hundreds of people who, like myself, before I did some research, didn't know this was a "thing".  Even surgeons that I trusted didn't know this was a possible treatment for me.

What I have learned is that doctors only know what they know, not everything and, no-one cares about my ankle more than I care about my ankle! SOOOO...

I want everyone to know that they too, have to advocate on their own behalf, for your health.  There MIGHT be a better way than your current health care provider knows about for YOUR specific situation!!!

I want you to know that there is HOPE, there are many roads that lead to your destination!  I want you to question those that are caring for you until you get the answers you need.  If  you are suffering from arthritis in the subtalar joint, I want you to explore the possibility of this procedure BEFORE considering fusing any joint in your foot!

I feel like I have to include a disclaimer, so, please remember, I am not a doctor, I am not being paid by any doctors or hospitals that I am recommending.  I am simply compelled to tell my story to help, educate, and provide hope.  I know what it feels like to be in pain, frustrated, sad and hopeless, because since being fitted with my fixator, I have not met one person that knew that it was possible to re-grow cartilage this way. 

In fact, I have met people who opted for fusing their joint to get pain relief who were told there was no other option.  I have heard of people who opted for amputation to get pain relief.

If this website helps one person make a more informed decision, restore hope, or find Dr. Rozbruch then it is worth all the time and trouble.
