A Special Letter from Dr. Tony DiGioia

Posted Nov 21 2009 10:01pm

Dear Patients, Family Members and Friends,


As you may have heard, I was hit by a car on Sunday morning, November 15th while taking a bicycle ride.


I have been told to take some time off to recover and rest at home.  However, I assure you that I will be back and at full capacity - it's only a matter of time and short time at that.   Although I am sore, there is no permanent damage and I will be back to operating and seeing patients in the office as soon as I am cleared by my doctors.  Day by day, I am feeling much better.


Thanks to everyone for your words of concern, get well wishes and prayers.  I would also like to extend my sincerest thanks to you and your families for understanding if the accident affected your scheduled surgery or an office visit.  My staff and I are doing everything we can to ensure that your care and road to recovery also gets back on track.


Accidents involving bicycles and cars are never good for the bike rider and considering what could have happened, I am very lucky and thankful.  In no time at all, I will back in the office seeing patients and operating again.  So if you know other patients and families, please pass on the word since we have had many calls of concern from the community.


Many, many thanks for your support and understanding from Renaissance Orthopaedics, The Orthopaedic Program at Magee and, especially, Cathy and me.


As always, best wishes,
