Calcaneus Fracture

Posted by Andrea S. on 5/04/01 at hrmin (046569)

My husband fell off a ladder and shattered his left heal bone.
4/29, its 5/4 he was released from the Hospital yesterday. The ortho said he feels surgery would do more harm then good. I obviously need a 2nd opinion and I need to find the best Doc. to get this from in the NYC area.
I have been told I have a 10 day to 2 week window.
Can you advise where, I can further research this or where to go?
Sincerely,
Andrea

Hi,

The Hospital for Special Joint Surgery is a very good institution.
