October 17th, 2013Beware this horrible human being!
My daughter has CP and is confined to a wheelchair. I took her to see him because her hips were popping when we would move her. He literally yelled me for waiting so long! He told me that she had to have surgery or it would just get worse and worse and eventually be too late, in fact almost WAS too late. His exact words were "This should have been done two years ago!" (At the time, I was so upset and guilt ridden that I didn't realize that my daughter's orthopedic surgeon two years prior was HIM! If something was missed, it was missed by HIM! Not the one we we started seeing closer to home!) Dr. Bruce guilted and pressured me into surgery for my child. He failed to mention that many kids who have this surgery develop failure to thrive, that the recovery is excruciating. My daughter almost died! And to make matters worse, when she was put in the ICU because the immense pain caused seizures, he didn't even show up! He sent a student! The supposed 6 week recovery was ten long months of pain for my 8 year old child. She did develop failure to thrive and almost died then as well. Do you think Dr. Bruce cared? No! He acted like it was my fault! He wanted to know why I stopped feeding her, like that is what really happened. I eventually took my daughter to another orthopedic surgeon who told me that all of the terrible things my child went through were not uncommon for that surgery. He then told me (based on the same xrays that Dr. Bruce used) that the surgery was not necessary. She doesn't walk and the popping wasn't causing pain so it wasn't a big deal that her hips were popping like that. In fact, he told me that had she been seeing him, he wouldn't have considered surgery at all! Dr. Bruce is surgery happy and full of himself. He takes a cavalier view of the children in his practice and does not care for their well being. They are little dollar signs to him! Five years later, my child still has pain from what he did to her and probably always will. She developed severe anxiety and has to take medication for it just to get through her day. She also has decreased range of motion in her hips since he hacked her up. He did nothing to help my child, only ruined her hip joints.

I think Dr. Bruce thinks HE is the world's gift to orthopedists and it has gone a little too far to his head, so his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. In the event you can look past that, his surgery abilities seem top notch, but there are other children's orthopedists in Atlanta who are just as good and have a better bedside manner.
