Dear Dr. Rozbruch,
I smiled when I saw your picture when I googled Dr. Rozbruch to find your email to reach out to you. I wanted to let you know how I am doing.
Since I had my knee surgeries at HSS, my life has changed in many ways.
I am a graphic artist at ArtFX sign company in Bloomfield Connecticut and I have become pretty good at my trade and travel New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut creating and installing signs and art at all types of businesses, galleries and spaces.
I have an amazing boyfriend, dog and cat, and bought a home last year.
I climb mountains, ride bikes, work out regularly and walk miles. I am going to be a certified personal trainer.
I used to dread even just going out into public, feared dislocation at random times, cried while getting dressed and saw no hope in becoming a fit, happy, “normal” woman.
I never reached out to thank you for everything that you did for me.
Before I met you I never thought I would actually do anything about my problems. I said to my mom right before my appointment “you know i’m not actually going to do this, right?” and left feeling a level of comfort with you that I did not expect. You made me feel like everything would be ok and I felt I could trust you like no one else.
Getting ready to have surgery was really scary, I wondered if I would wake up ever being able to walk again.
Having my knee surgeries was the biggest blessing I’ve ever had in my life. You have been the missing puzzle piece to allow me to become the person I always wished. I have the ability to do anything i’ve ever dreamed and I am, and I do not go a single day without being terrifically grateful for my health, body and the ability to walk, move and be a free human being.
Thank you for giving me comfort in one of the most difficult situations I have faced. I am sure you have had an amazing impact on many lives and mine is just one more. Thank you for giving me a new lease on life and the ability to physically achieve things that I have dreamed for years. Thank you for helping me to live a life full of adventures and creativity, and void of fears of being physically unable.
Thank you Dr. Rozbruch.
