 |  Gave me my life back!  |  show details
by Sonja on Mar 3rd, 2014

Dr. Maale studies each case before he accepts each patient. When he accepted me, I was so sick! MRSA had invaded my right knee replacement. I figured he would recommend surgery right away. He got an infection specialist on board to get the infection localized to the metal only, and I felt much better. He did a one stage revision with the most amazing knee. It will not dislocate! I should know. It has turned 180 degrees and my husband had to put it back. I am out living life again! I am doing Zumba, yogalates, preparing to walk a 5 K, did a fitness Bootcamp, and am going to try spin class next. I am swimming for time and working out 5 days a week! I weighed 435 pounds at one point, now I am down to 263.2 and going down! I love living and being active again! I changed the way I eat and I feel like a million bucks! Thank you Dr. Maale! You are one in a million!!!

by Tamara T on Oct 22nd, 2013

In 1996 at the age of 16 I was diagnosed with a Ewing Sarcoma in my left femur. I had been to "specialist" in Oklahoma and told it was a sports injury 6 months prior to meeting Dr. Maale, when the doctor in Oklahoma finally found the cancer it had spread and consumed most of my femur and all of my knee. They informed me of the cancer and then explained that I was terminal and they needed to amputate my left leg and start treatments to try to "prolong" my life. Two weeks later I was introduced to Dr. Maale and he gave me hope that I would survive and save my leg. In December after almost 5 months of chemo of 1996 I received a total knee replacement along with a femur transplant, a little more than a year later I was released cancer free. Dr. Maale saved my life.

Went twice and waited longer than 2hrs each time only to see Dr. maale for all of 3 minutes before he ran out of the room without me getting a chance to ask him any questions. He is very rude and has a serious "God Complex". Considers himself the #1 Sarcoma doctor in the world and loves to bad mouth MD Anderson. Save yourself the stress and agitation of seeing this doctor and go somewhere else.

terrific at his field. Just do not expect any hand holding. VERY little time explaining problem and no bedside manner. I recommend taking a note pad. If you are lucky you will get thru some of your questions.
