"We can do all we can to fix things that are broken, as close to their normal state as possible, so that a patient can carry on. In general, that is one of the more satisfying things, when you put something back together. We also have the ability to replace things, and replacements typically do incredibly well overall. This ability to repair, and replace things that give people a new lease on life, or allow them to return to what they want to do bring a lot of satisfaction to me as an orthopedist." - Dr. John Foley
