Dr. Carl Kirker-Head showed me the fracture and explained the technique of internal fixation with a titanium plate to hold the bone together. He was very realistic with prognosis, but one look in Holly’s eyes had told me she was up for it…and if she was, I certainly was too.




Everyone that I interacted with was wonderful. Dr. Jenei's communication overall was amazing.
