Femur Fracture

“Dr. Helfet is the best.”

I just want to tell everybody that Dr. Helfet is the best. I had an accident and broke my femur in 4 places. I had 5 surgeries before and the only one that worked was the one I had with Dr. Helfet. He saved my leg. I was told I could never walk again. He is the best in the whole world.
