"I have been seeing the staff at Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic as a patient since 1997. Dr. Ryan has given me two new knees, my right in 1997, and my left in 2011. He also performed a hip replacement for my left hip in 2010, which unfortunately was recalled by the manufacturer only a few years later in 2012. In 2013, Dr. Prevost removed the recalled hip implant and gave me a second new hip. Also in 2013, Dr. Prevost did a total shoulder replacement on my right shoulder. Dr. Prevost then did a total shoulder replacement on my left shoulder in 2014. Not to be outdone, Dr. Peterson repaired significant degradation in my lower lumbar spine to correct severe arthritic and disc damage. He was also able to correct nerve impairment in my right hand in 2014, which was caused by the extensive use of crutches in the past several years. I cannot forget the great PA-C's, who were always there to help me, especially David Wonchala, Glen Welker, and Kimberly Hand.
After each of these procedures, I was skillfully guided to a sound recovery by the wonderful staff at the Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic physical therapy offices. Thanks to the able hands and skill of Annette Rohde, Yasmin Lechtenberg, and Holly McClure, I had terrific guidance on how to get back to daily activity. I can't say enough about the caring and kindness each of the nurses and office staff showed in my many visits. The doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, and office staff are my favorite people. Without them, I have no idea how miserable my life would have been. I can never thank you enough." -- David S.
