Dr. Rossini Performs ACL Reconstruction to Get Skier Back on Her Feet
Hello, I am a patient of Dr. Gerald-John Rossini at Coordinated Health in Allentown, PA. I had the very good fortune of finding Dr. Rossini after learning that my life-long Orthopedic Surgeon had recently experienced an injury himself, and was not available to me in practice at the time of my skiing injury. Needless to say, after being diagnosed with a torn ACL and fractured tibia of the left knee, and in my middle 50's, I needed immediate care and attention! I quickly visited with several Surgeons, and obtained a variety of opinions on how to proceed. However, I knew the very day I visited with Dr. Rossini, I was not only lucky to have met him, but without question HE would be the Doctor I would want to perform my ACL Reconstructive surgery. He was referred to me by a friend, also a medical professional. He is attentive and precise, has a caring nature, and thoroughly communicates ALL options. His continuing follow up has moved me forward through months of rehab and progress up to my recovery. Additionally, he educated me in order to make a well informed decision regarding surgery. I decided to have the ACL reconstruction, feeling very secure at the hands of Dr. Rossini. I am so very pleased to say Dr. Rossini continues his ongoing care and attention to my progress six months post surgery, through a successful surgical procedure to rehabilitation.
I am in professional pharmaceutical sales in the Veterinary industry, and must be mobile as I travel continuously. Due to the skill and his remarkable quality of care, I can ride my horse again, sail, dance and ski, and be physically able to do those things I have loved and enjoyed all my life.
Thank you Dr. R!
