"Dr. Mark Tenholder did a fantastic job of saving and mending my broken leg!  It was broken in 8 pieces from my ankle to mid leg!  It took 18 screws and two titanium plates to repair.  Today, I ride a bicycle about 6 to 18 miles a day in good weather.  Thank you to all the staff for being so friendly and helpful in my recovery.  On cold, wet days, it hurts just like it just happened!  On nice days, it’s almost like the accident never happened.  I'm sure later I may be walking with a cane! I am grateful to be able to ride a bicycle daily and enjoy the outdoors! Thank you, very much!" --Rick D.
