The Best Doctor In The World!

I work at St. Mary's Medical Center and I suffered a hip fracture 9 months ago. Dr. Kosmatka convinced me to have surgery (I didn't want it). It was the best thing he DID! I can now walk again and I have my life back. P.S. Dr. Kosmatka inserted a plate, 4 screws, and 2 small rods which are doing just fine in me!

An exceptional Doctor

Not only is Dr. Kosmatka very knowledgeable but he is also incredibly friendly and personable. He repaired (2) broken bones I had in my lower leg 3 years ago and even with a plate and numerous pins, I cannot even tell it ever happened (including the very faint scar). Perhaps the best physician I have seen in my 39 years.
