"This whole experience has been very eye opening. Although I played multiple sports the majority of my life and have always been extremely active (especially outdoors), before this injury, I had never broken a bone. Every person I met who was involved in my process of recovery was exceptionally well-mannered, well trained, and comforting to be around, especially Dr. Watt. He made me feel as though everything would be okay no matter what steps we had to take. In my case, those steps meant surgery and possibly physical therapy. After following "doctor's orders" as best I could, my injury healed well enough that I didn't need additional physical therapy. The gentle reminder from Dr. Watt that I am not invincible was much needed and appreciated. :)  It's been a little over 3 months since my surgery with Dr. Watt and my wrist feels great! I would highly recommend Orthopaedic Associates to anyone and everyone. Thank You Dr. Watt! You Rock!! :)" -- Heather D.
