Brooke’s Success Story

by Dr. Neal Blitz

My mom and I decided to fly in from Ohio to New York because Dr. Blitz is truly one of a kind.  There wasn’t another surgeon in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky or Tennessee.  We searched all those places.  Dr. Blitz was the only one that was just a perfect fit for my situation.

I had gotten many other opinions before from a lot of other surgeons that just did not want do the procedure that I felt was best for me.

Dr. Blitz was very knowledgeable in that aspect.  He is very professional and he spent a lot of time with us.  Other surgeons, the procedure that they wanted to do to fix my issue, was very old school and they had been doing it for such a very long time.  I came in, they told me what was wrong and they wanted to sign me up for surgery right then and there.

Dr. Blitz has been phenomenal throughout this entire process.  He spent a lot of personal time with my mom and I discussing all of our fears, my recovery and we never were left with any questions as far as the surgery.

It was very important to have a surgeon that could do revision surgery for my foot because I had been through, like I said, three previous surgeries and I did not obtain the result that I was hoping to obtain.

This surgery has been just a breeze recovery wise.  Usually in the past I’ve been sick, I had been in so much pain, I couldn’t walk for a really long time.  I was actually shocked with how I was not in much pain, I was not nauseous and I was actually able to move my foot around the day after the surgery.  It’s just been a wonderful experience recovery wise.

What advice I would give for other people that may be in my situation is don’t be afraid to take a risk and follow your heart.  If I had not followed what I thought was best for me and what was best for my foot I would have had a completely different surgery that would have had a longer recovery and it may not have ever really worked for me and it would have been permanent.

We had searched all over the nation for a physician that could fix the issue that I was having with my foot and Dr. Blitz was the only one that could!
