Emily’s Story

So much love to you all!

I am a dancer and a performer in the Twin Cities. I had a bit of a freak accident, onstage, in June of 2016. Dr. Warner and his team not only reconstructed my left knee (and tendons), but the care that I received before, during, and for long after, was the best care I have had in my life. I am no rookie when it comes to injury, or medical care in many aspects. This was a traumatizing moment in my life, and I would not have made it through without them. Patience, respect, and understanding is what they give readily. I’m not a fan of doctors, but this team changed my opinion. I am now dancing and performing again, getting to perform at venues around the country and at home. I have a new appreciation for what I love, and I have them to thank for it. So much love to you all!
