Christine N.

In 2000, both of my ankles were broken.  I was told the severity of the injury to my right ankle would most likely not be able to be repaired.  I demanded the best doctor in the world to repair my ankles because I was a single mother with 2 young children, living in a multi-level house.  I told my doctor that if it meant leaving the country to get my ankles fixed, I would do so.  With that, my doctor found Dr. Coetzee located in S. Africa at the time and requested that we coordinate an effort to repair my ankles.  Dr. Coetzee left South Africa to come here to fix my ankles.  It is now 16 years later and I still tell this story of such a wonderful, skilled surgeon who saved me from walking with a cane for the rest of my life or worse.  This man is THE BEST!  My now adult daughters are equally appreciative of such a gift from him.  They got their mother back after a one year recovery and childhood of not having to have their mother dependent on them for help.  Thank you again Dr. Coetzee.
