“After 2 years of worsening pain, misinformation, and told I would lose mobility because the joint would have to be fused, I am walking almost totally pain free, with no loss of movement. I am back riding my motorcycle. I've cleaned my golf clubs and getting ready for the links. My worst fears and apprehensions were never realized my only regret is not coming to Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron sooner and thinking if I wait it will get better. I lost all that time and for no good reason. Thank you Dr. Braaksma and OA for a job well done!!!”

“Had surgery on leg for plantar faciitis. The day of surgery was great. Very professional, very efficient. Everyone was great to deal with. After 2 days I had less pain than before surgery. I was back to work after only 3 days off. When cast came off and I started walking on it I couldn't believe the difference. After 3 weeks I went back to walking for exercise. After 4 weeks I went back to water aerobics and bowling. My foot feels great. My calf gets tight so I stretch it everyday. I have no pain and I even asked Dr Braaksma if they have a surgery like this for my elbow.”

“Dr Braaksma is fantastic! He has a great bedside manor and is very thorough. I was having severe foot pain without any fractures. Dr. Braaksma determined what was wrong and developed a great course of action. The treatment plan included physical therapy and between Maureen and Kristin they had a great therapy plan carried out by the best group of technicians to eliminate almost all of the pain. It is still a work in progress however, I am extremely satisfied with the progress. I went from constant pain 100% of the time to limited pain 5% of the time.”
