Fixed my broken ankle!

Almost 7 months ago I ended up in Frederick Memorial Hospital with a trimalleolar ankle fracture. I was in tremendous pain and very scared and at the mercy of whatever surgeon was on call that day. Thank heavens it was Dr. Kowalk! He explained the injury to me very well and the surgery that was highly recommended/necessary to fix it. My surgery went smoothly with screws and plates installed and he monitored my recovery as well. As early as 3 months after the surgery I was back to taking walks and shortly thereafter was back to vigorous activity at the gym. My ankle is as close to perfect as I can imagine after such a serious injury. I am forever grateful for the person who fixed it. He did a tremendously good job.
