UOS Patient Stories

Erica - Reconstructed Femur Surgery in the Knee

Dr. Brain M. Tonne

Thanks to my care at UOS, I can live my normal life again, and enjoy going to sporting events. I can also go to the gym and not have a lot of pain afterwards.

Dr. Brian Tonne was my trauma surgeon in the trauma bay at University of Tennessee Medical Center back in June of 2016. I had a unusual accident that left me in a wheelchair and not able to walk for a couple of months. My right knee was pretty bad and Dr. Tonne completely put it back together with a metal plate and 20 screws. He completely reconstructed my right femur at the bend of the knee. That was only 10 months ago. I am now able to bend my knee with complete full range of motion and I dont limp. I walk and I am in the gym on the elliptical and using weights to keep strength. He did an amazing job on my scars as well. I am blessed and very thankful for Dr. Brain Tonne and his team. I would highly recommend him for any surgery, he gives time in each visit to answer questions and fully explain all concerns. Thank you UOS! The services you provide have been amazing!
