From a patient:

"While experiencing the best downhill skiing of my life in 15" of fresh powder on a double-black diamond slope through the trees that I had already enjoyed a few times, I fell and heard a heartbreaking pop in my left knee. I found out soon afterward I had ruptured my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL), the most common injury for alpine skiers. At my age, the options were slim when looking at a normal lifestyle. However, I live an intensely active life and keep my high level fitness to make sure I can play hard without injuring myself - before I get to the age where I really must stop. There was no question in my mind that I wanted surgery and soon. I surveyed friends and then narrowed it down to my most athletically demanding friends, that's how I chose Dr. John Frost.

Dr. Frost impressed me immediately with my two hour first visit, when he thoroughly explained all the options for repair - most non-surgical and never tried to influence me toward my decision on what to do. He prepared me beforehand so I knew what to expect, the surgery went perfectly and the aftercare was thorough. I am now stronger than I was before I became injured and continuing my activities 100%. I am grateful to Dr. Frost and his very warm and friendly staff."
