What patients say about Dr. rogozinski

  • Thanks to my daughter's care at KOC, she can return to life as a normal 6 year old. My oldest daughter was outside playing with a softball bat and it came out of her hand hitting my 6-year-old's hand. She had a glass of milk and the glass exploded. What we thought was just a simple cut and a quick trip to the ER turned out to be a cut nerve and tendons. We were referred through our insurance to KOC where we met with one of the pediatric doctors. He advised we would want to see one of the 3 hand specialists, all of whom he would let do surgery on his children. We were lucky to get an appointment the next day with Dr. Rogozinski. After a quick check we learned about the nerve damage and that surgery was going to occur the next morning. Everyone was great in comforting a brave 5 year old at the time. Upon check in they gave her bear Rainbow a bracelet just like hers. They took us back to the waiting area where everyone was amazing. Recovery was easy and they even dressed Rainbow in surgical dress out full with mask and hair cover. She was in a cast for 6 weeks after surgery and had to do PT for about 12 weeks. Because of the amazing work of Dr. Rogo and his staff, Baylee is on her way to a good recovery of an injury that could very well have cost her the movement of her pinky finger. At last check up all nerve activity was normal and she is able to make a fist. She still has work to do to move the tip on its own but we believe that this will happen in time, but if not we are still very grateful.

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can use my hand and fingers. Dr. Rogozinski made me feel comfortable and he seemed to really care. I wouldn't trade him for nothing. He is great to have as my doctor. Dr. Rogozinski takes his time with me to get a good idea on what's happening with my fingers. He answers my questions and makes sure I understand his answers. He is awesome and I have complete faith in him.

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can resume life with very limited restriction. I fell backwards from an attic pull down ladder and “caught” myself with my hands extended behind me. I was seen at a local ER and then visited KOC. After 2 weeks of casting it was determined that I would need surgery on my left wrist to realign and stabilize. Dr. Rogozinski was very thorough in his explanation of the surgical procedure and understanding of my anxiety concerning surgery. This was the first surgery I had ever needed so I was a bit nervous. Surgery went well as did all follow up appointments. I have completed occupational therapy with Michelle Carr who was also excellent and very encouraging. With continued hand exercises at home I have been able to return to my regular daily activities and classes at the gym. My scar is virtually invisible thanks to the skill of Dr. Rogozinski. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him to anyone needing hand or upper extremity care.
