I just flew across the country to have Dr. Purnell fasten my quad back to my knee. Ten years ago he did my other knee, acl, mcl. Having this latest injury back east made getting to Aspen a little more difficult, but I am so thankful he performed the surgery. I wouldnt trust my legs to anyone else. Fantastic surgeon, but sometimes even just as important great bedside manner and true interest in his patients. He is what a true doctor should be like.
