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.
I will continue update this site through my blog, so sit back, relax and join me on my cartilage re-growing journey! Send me an email if you have any questions! Thanks for your support and prayers.
