Ligament Repair Helps Young Soccer Star…TWICE

Michelle Ocariza ran toward the soccer ball. The defender, wanting the same thing, collided with her so forcefully that the 16-year-old player fell to the ground. Her knee had given out.

H. Thompson, Tucson

I first came to Dr. Slagis’ office in 1999 with a damaged left shoulder from a quad accident in Colorado while elk hunting. It was really injured; Dr. Slagis said it was broken in four places. He suggested putting it in a sling for several weeks and seeing if it would mend on its own. Then I could have some...

Maria C., Tucson

Scott Slagis, MD was on call when I came to TMC Emergency with a broken wrist. I've had a lifetime of experience with orthopedic surgeons and he ranks in my top three. He has been the consummate professional in managing my case; compassionate, communicative, competent, and considerate. He takes time to be sure that I understand everything that's happening to...
