In 2009 I broke my big left toe badly. I went to see another Doctor, and they told me nothing could be done.I suffered with it for 2 years. The bone was degenerating, and healing misshaped. I heard Dr. Bacon was the orthopedic surgeon for Rice University sports teams, so I made an appointment, and after looking at the x-rays, she determined that it could be fixed. She performed the surgery and within a month my toe and foot were amazingly better; better than I ever hoped for. I am actively engaged in martial arts and, thanks to her, I will be inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2 weeks. I could never have achieved this honor without Dr. Bacon's magic touch.

I have been playing soccer since I have been able to walk. I was a highly recruited player in the area and received several Division 1 offers to play soccer. During one of my last games of my senior year my life took an unexpected blow. I was going to make a routine play I've done many times, but ended up getting my foot stuck in the turf running full speed and breaking my leg off impact with the goalkeeper. I knew it was a broken leg, but I was in no way ready to deal with the real type of injury I had at age 17. Not only did I think my soccer career was over, but I even questioned if I'd walk again normally, or at all. After a series of operations during a 2-week span to help save my leg from a muscle trauma called Acute Compartment Syndrome, I started losing all hope. Many doctors and nurses told me it was not looking well, until I met Dr. Bacon. She was the only doctor who said she would get me back to playing soccer from the start and never doubted me once, like everyone else. She told me as long as I worked hard, Iâ€™d be able to return to what I loved to do. She also led me to the greatest physical therapist I could ask for, and who is still very close to my family and I todayâ€¦almost 4 years later.
After about 9 operations and long hours of therapy over a span of 3 years, Dr. Bacon and my physical therapist got me back to a Division 1 level where I got a scholarship to play soccer for HBU. I thank God every day, not only for getting me back to what I love, but for people like Dr. Bacon who did much more than they needed to help me succeed. If I ever get injured again or someone else I know, I will definitely tell him or her to see Dr. Bacon. I hope that one day I am able to repay Dr. Bacon for all she has done for my family and me. We will forever be grateful and thank God for putting my leg in her care. I couldn't even imagine it any other way.

Dr. Bacon, I can never thank you enough for what you have done for me and for my daughter, Melia. In 2011, on the first anniversary of my surgery, my wife and I walked for two hours on Copacabana beach in Rio. I also completed a four hour nature walk over rough terrain in The Falklands and hiked to del Fin del Terre at the tip of South America. You are truly a great doctor, and I thank God every day for you and for Dr. Fogarty who recommended you for Melia's surgery.

I wanted to take some time and write to you about Dr. Stacy Bacon. Two years ago on August 25, 2009 I fell off a balcony and shattered my ankle, tibea, and fibula. I went to the emergency room and they said I would need to see an Orthopedic Surgeon because the break was so severe. On August 26, 2009 I went and met with Dr. Bacon she came in and evaluated my leg and foot and said I had a serious break and I was going to have to undergo a lot to get healed.
In the last two years I have undergone eight surgeries, three external fixators, and finally amputating the leg. I have had a lot of ups and downs in the last two years and through it all Dr. Bacon was amazing. She has always shown real concern and passion about me - she has at times made me feel like someone in her family that was hurt.
Now that my leg has been amputated I am so happy because I know there is a true end in sight and I will get my life back. The only sad part is this means there is also an end in sight for my relationship with Dr. Bacon.
I would like you to know that Dr. Stacy Bacon is an amazing person and an amazing doctor. Every time I meet someone and they ask me who my doctor is and I tell them Dr. Bacon I hear the same thing. Oh My God she is awesome, she helped my nephew, my child, my husband, wife and the list goes on. She has helped a ton of people and she has helped me. We tried everything under the moon and stars to save my leg, but it wasn't meant to be and that's ok - trust me I am so excited about my new life I just can't put it into words.
For the rest of my life I will hold Dr. Stacy Bacon in the highest regard and I would recommend her and this company to everyone I know. Advanced Orthopedics' should be honored to have someone like Dr. Bacon representing them.
If you recall I came to you for a second opinion after it was recommended I get an OATS procedure for an osteochondral defect. You recommended a far less invasive procedure and I am so incredibly happy I went with you! I wanted to let you know that I played a game of soccer with my boys (6, 10, & 13) last night and for the first time in two years did so with absolutely no pain during or after. I've been cycling on a stationary bike and feel awesome and now I'm happy to say that for almost 100% of the time I forget about my ankle because it simply doesn't hurt anymore. I just can't begin to explain how happy I am with the success of this surgery, I can't believe I almost went with OATS.
My main purpose for getting the surgery was to ensure that my boys didn't have a Dad who couldn't play or run around and have fun, and I can honestly say that I've met that goal. You've made my life a thousand times better! Thanks again!!
