She was able to get me in at 11:00 am the same day I called. Dr. Braaksma was on time, reviewed and discussed my ankle issue and did the procedure. Great service! ”

  • “When I was thirteen years old I blew out my ACL playing basketball. Dr. Murphy performed my surgery and with the help from Marc also from OA I was able to get back to playing high school sports and training in martial arts. After high school I began training harder in martial arts which led to two more knee surgeries scar tissue removal and a meniscus tear on the same knee. Dr. Murphy knows that sports are very important to me and that I will always push myself so he got me able to go back to doing the things that I love. I am currently fourth in the state of Michigan for my age and rank sparring division and I also took third in World Karate and Kickboxing Championships this past November. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy and the members of Orthopedic Associates for anybody with sports related injuries. ”
