- I dislocated my ankle and and had multiple fractures. Described by all the doctors involved as serious or extreme. Dr Natsuhara performed my surgery and was as helpful, thorough, and patient as possible through the entire ordeal. There were many times when I felt that my ankle would never be the same, would never feel like it did, feel "normal". As I sit here typing this, six months out from surgery, after eight weeks of physical therapy and home workouts, I can say that I was wrong. My ankle/leg do feel like they did before the accident. I have no pain, great range of motion, and am back to "normal". None of this would've been possible without Dr, Natsuhara. I would recommend him and Alpine Orthopedic to anyone.
