Patients That Inspire
“As an avid runner, I came to Dr. Swanson really hoping that running the Boston Marathon wasn’t out of reach, after injuring myself just nine weeks before the race. In one week I had arthroscopic knee surgery, and went to physical therapy five days a week after surgery. I couldn’t believe it, when race day came I was able to run the marathon. I couldn’t be happier with my experience, and I feel so lucky to continue on teaching my regular fitness classes, while also continuing to train for the next marathon. I cannot imagine life without running or being active. Dr. Swanson got me to where I needed to be, to run that race, what an awesome experience!” LeighAnne H.
“Dr. Swanson is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. My shoulder was replaced about one year ago, at that time I was extremely limited to do most normal tasks. These normal day-to-day tasks had become impossible. I was unable to do for myself as I always had, after just five weeks post-surgery I was finally able to brush my hair and lift my arm above my head– what a difference, I’m forever grateful. I’d recommend all of my friends and family to Dr. Swanson!” Clyde F.
