Patient Stories

"What really made me go towards Dr. Ruff was that I liked his ideas on surgery. He not only told me what he thought I needed and why, but he was the only doctor to include a diet and exercise plan as part of the surgery. High protein diet before and after to help the healing process. Exercise begins the day after surgery. He said I should be back at my gym normal routine in 4‐6 weeks. Surgery would be one day, instead of spanning a year and a half. Also, he explains everything. He tells you why and how. He's so personable, and I felt safe, and confident in his abilities." ~ E.R.
