When I was a teenager, I broke my scaphoid bone in my right wrist in a dirt bike accident. I had received my care and surgery at a different Orthopedic clinic. Fast forward about 5 years, my wrist would still ache and hurt, so I turned to Dr. Meletiou for a second opinion. I left my appointment wishing I had just seen him the first time, my original surgery had never healed, leaving a nonunion and a tough surgery with a long healing time ahead. Dr. Meletiou and the entire staff at TCO made everything a breeze, and I was always treated like a person, not just a name on the patient list, even though I was a pain and always pushed my restrictions to the limit (I’m sure they loved that, haha). Fast forward another few years, and my wrist is back to being fully functional with no aches or pains thanks to the team at TCO! I always highly recommend anyone I know to go there for any issues they might be facing.
