Dr. Rynning is an EXCELLENT surgeon. More than that, however, is that he cares. He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why. Rather than doing what is easiest or quickest, he listens to your goals as a person and/or athlete and works with you to achieve what you need to continue a way of life. He is over the top patient with the patience’ impatience. Believe me, I tested him.
As a professional athlete my body became my life. You look after your body and mind, your nutrition, you are comfortable with sacrifice to your day to day life, the hours of training, the rest necessary to perform at your peak.
Inevitably there will be an injury, whether it be from a training or racing mishap, or related to the stress you are putting your body under.
Injury is a component of the life of an athlete. A component that athletes, unfortunately, have to become accustomed to.
Getting back to your best is what every athlete wants. Not just in the moment, but for the future, long after the athletic career has ended.
When I broke my tibia and fibula it was a very humbling experience. One of the legs, that had helped me achieve all my childhood dreams, to become a professional cyclist, had been compromised.
Without the help of Dr. Scott Hacker, I am not sure I would have been able to rebound from such an injury, and return to sports so quickly. I was riding again 4 months after surgery, and I have regained full range of movement and have been mostly unaffected by the injury and the trauma to the leg.
Without the experience and Dr. Hacker’s ability to return me to my sport, the outcome could have been very different. Dr. Hacker helped me to move forward and enjoy all my athletic endeavors post op and I would, and have, recommended him to my friends.
If you have been injured, enjoy an athletic lifestyle and want to return to your former level, Dr. Scott Hacker is one of the best.
“One year ago today was my fifth and FINAL knee surgery! This year mark is when I can finally start getting back to my full potential. This has been a long, emotional journey but it has definitely taught me so much about myself. Although this has been a roller coaster ride, without it I wouldn’t have met the people who have now become extremely important in my life. I would have never been able to get through it all without the support of Dr. Hacker and his physical therapists who are all such a huge part of my life now. It’s crazy how much a little knee can be such a huge part of your life!”
I was amazed at the care given to me by the staff at Alvarado Hospital. I had back surgery and the staff was excellent. Doing more than I would expect from them, making sure I was as comfortable after the surgery as I could be. My Doctor Finkenberg was also excellent and did a great job. Thank you all very much.
