Kathy A.

On July 6, 2017, Dr. Holthusen performed surgery on my left Achilles heel and removed a bone spur. I had suffered for over 2 years, including a year of physical therapy and two cortisone injections. Through all of this, it continued to get worse.  I finally saw Dr. Holthusen and we agreed surgery was necessary. Today (10/12/2017) I saw Dr. Holthusen, my ankle and foot are doing great and I am able to walk without pain. I went through physical therapy at Ridgeview and my therapist, Greg, was awesome. I am so pleased with my outcome. Thank you to Dr. Holthusen for doing a great job on my Achilles heel and removing the bone spur. My healing progress has been absolutely remarkable. I am walking 2 miles 3 -4 times a week, and doing stationery bike for 5 minutes.

Thank you for giving me the ability to walk again and to have the quality of life I have desired for so long.
