I Have Full Faith In Dr. Magaziner

I Have Full Faith In Dr. Magaziner

My name is Terry and I am a product manager. In 2017 at the fitness center, I injured the tibial tendon in my right ankle. The orthopedic doctor said that the tendon was weakening over time as a result of wear and tear – I was a heavy set middle-aged woman and this is a common injury. The doctor prescribed cold to bring down the inflammation, NSAIDs as needed and gave me an air cast (something you can buy for $25 on Amazon or at a medical supply store). After a month and no improvement – in fact, it was getting worse – I went back to that well-reputed orthopedic doctor. He didn’t change the treatment – basically said to give it more time.

Months went by and my condition only got worse – the pain was growing and I limped. By the evening, I really was unable to walk. Went back again to the orthopedic doctor and he recommended surgery, which would be a very difficult 6 month to one year recovery. I live in split level house and there is no one level that would meet all my needs. Also, I needed to be in a position to interview for jobs, and the surgery option was a huge commitment with many unknowns concerning how I would progress through recovery. As a last step before this option, the doctor prescribed an Arizona brace – a custom-made brace from a cast of the foot/ankle that prevented movement with the goal of reducing inflammation so healing could take place. This did not work.

The final option I investigated was stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapy. In early 2018, I consulted with three physicians and chose Dr. Magaziner. He was the only one who conducted a thorough exam of my ankle and foot, and my leg. The other doctors relied on the MRI only. Also, Dr. Magaziner is a pain management specialist.

The number of treatments depends on each individual and how they heal. I had four treatments over the course of four months. The last treatment was particularly beneficial and I noticed an acceleration in the healing. It is truly miraculous – my right ankle has been in great shape these past 18 months! I have been able to do all of my daily routine activities. Once in awhile, I’ll overdue it and then feel a little pain in the area, but then it goes away and I’m back to normal the next day.

I have full faith in Dr. Magaziner and his expertise in administering these treatments and minimizing discomfort.
