I have had three episodes in which Dr. Egwele managed my hand and lower ext. care. He is always knowledgable, sensative and caring and I have had excellent recoveries in all instances. I highly reccomend him.

Best Ortopaedic Surgeon period.

Dr, Egewele was my Ortho Surgeon over 30 years ago and had had two major compound fractures to both lower legs. The great work he did on me in 1980 allowed me two to recieve a football scholarship to Grambling State University and also serve 16 years in the military as a Medic.
