Elizabeth’s Story

Thanks to the entire staff of Summit Orthopedics because it’s such a great team!

I was referred to Dr. Michael Forseth about 10 years ago for issues with osteophytes forming in my hands and wrist. He was recommended highly by the occupational therapist I had at the time. I went on her recommendation and have never regretted it. Dr. Forseth took osteophytes from my left wrist and now this past September 15 from my left thumb along with removal of a mucous cyst. I had absolutely no anxiety before or after over my surgery. It all went well, AND I even received a nice post op card signed by staff to have a speedy healing!

This Wednesday, Dr. Forseth will remove my dressing and stitches. I am ever so grateful for that recommendation so many years ago.

Thanks to the entire staff of Summit Orthopedics because it’s such a great team!

Also thanks for donating to others in need of surgery but can’t afford it, or it’s not available to them.

God bless you!
