I was totally scared and worried about the outcome of this surgery. Dr. Downey explained the entire process to me so that I was much more relieved. Dr. Downey was also very confident about the procedure which made me feel more confident. The surgery went quite well and I healed much better than expected. I now walk with no virtually no limp and most importantly, I am pain free.
