“I was in a car accident that fractured my talus. After the first operation, I had a lot of pain in the ankle. Dr. DiPreta worked with me for a few years to figure out how to fix the pain. After numerous cortisone injections that didn't last long, I opted for fusion. My ankle was fused right at the Bone & Joint Center in an operation. The fusion was very successful, and has helped a ton with strength, mobility, and pain. He has been great throughout the entire time I've been seeing him. I'm very pleased with the level of care.”

“This brokenfoot by far is the worst experience I've ever been through. But my Dr and Staff at B & J Center has been nothing but great to me through out this journey. With the guidance of my Dr I'm almost at the finish line of walking again. Thank you!”
