Both Dr. Saltzman and his PA have been great throughout this entire process, including surgery. They are, most importantly, competent. They are responsive, friendly, patient and overall, very helpful. I would highly recommend them to potential patients.

It helps that Dr. Satlzman was recommended by a good friend and also my regular physical therapist. I saw another doc for a 2d opinion and he spent more time reviewing my condition, so that had me wondering if Dr. Saltzman saw enough. The recommendations for treatment were not different. The references for Dr. Saltzman and his demeanor, and apparent knowledge, give me great confidence.

Orthopedically there is not much which can be done in this situation. There is no cure for this genetic condition and not many options. Surgery is not an option and honesty was much appreciated by Dr Saltzman in explaining why it would not be successful.
