“I destroyed my ankle, broke my leg after 20ft fall in Estes Park. My local Doctor described the bits of my ankle in original x-rays as a “star field of dots”. Dr. Rusnak’s miraculous reconstruction of my talus saved my foot, my ability to walk and my 20+yr career as a broadcast photojournalist. Still covering news on the streets of Austin, Texas 7 yrs later! Thank you Dr. Rusnak!” –Scott G.
“Dr. Rusnak is an excellent trauma surgeon. I had a pilon fracture in Steamboat, where I had my fixator applied and then transferred to Dr. Rusnak's care for the repair. Pilon fractures are complex and he did an incredible job putting my leg back together. He was personable, compassionate and professional. His staff was friendly, accommodating and professional as well.”
