Diagonsis: The diagnosis in this case was ACL tear and complex tear of meniscus - ACL reconstruction and meniscal repair.

Hi, Good day, this is Jean Carlo Tomelden, my ACL was torn last May 2017. Having ACL is not that easy, i can’t do my job properly, I can’t play basketball, and I can’t even jog for 5 minutes, it affects me mentally and physically. After 4 months I decided to have a surgery for my ACL, my friend John David Leprozo referred me at Burjeel Hospital. He’s also a ACL patient and also a nurse at the Burjeel Hospital, then I met Dr. Hans Fuchs, we talked about my condition then he recommend to have a surgery before it gets worst. His nurse Charles is a very nice guy, he’s the one who helped me with everything like schedules, paperworks, etc. October 9, 2017 is the day of my surgery, I was kind of nervous and i hoped everything would be fine. After a few weeks my Physiotherapist Joseph Basil told me that the surgery was nice, my knee is recovering faster, he was surprised because on my 4th week there were no tightness in my knees already. I was happy about the results, Dr. Fuchs told me that the operation went fine and I should take care of it. I cant wait to play basketball and do some work out stronger and better. I am proud to say thank you Burjeel Hospital, to Dr. Hans Fuchs to his nurse Charles to his secretary Shaheer, to my friend who referred me to him John David Leprozo and to my Physiotherapist Joseph Basil. And I appreciate every employee of Bujeel Hospital, they’re all accommodating. Thank you so much!

Diagnosis - Displaced fractures of several metatarsals, left foot - ORIF left foot.

There is no possible way for me to express my gratitude to Dr Hans for the incredible care I received from him following being diagnosed with two fractured metatarsals in my left foot.

Following a bad fall, no doctor I saw was able to give me a clear indication as to the best course treatment and the decision kept being placed on me and what I felt like was best. Feeling scared, worried and defeated, I decided to seek another opinion and I was referred to Dr Hans who came highly recommend, upon meeting him I instantly felt relieved for the first time since my break, his kindness and empathy he showed me in that first appointment when I was scared and confused as to what I was in for, goes beyond any treatment I have ever received.

He took his time to explain every little detail no matter how silly my questions may have seemed, from how I managed to break the bones, to the best course of treatment based on his extensive experience and knowledge, for the best prognosis long term which is what I wanted and could not find from any other surgeon.

After reviewing my X-rays it was clear I would need the bones realigned and to have K-wires placed temporarily until the bones fused. Dr Hans performed the operation without any complication and a beautiful straight realignment of the fractured bones, for the 6weeks that followed I chose to go home to South Africa for the recovery time, and we had Dr Hans along the way with us every step including having his picture up so he could watch over my healing bones, he has become part of the family back home as everyone knows about my wonderful German surgeon who looked after me when I was so scared. I saw orthopedic surgeons as well as the radiographers who monitored the bone healing in South Africa who all applauded Dr Hans work and how well he had performed the operation and the bone alignment.

Living abroad it can often be overwhelming needing medical attention as it seems so foreign to what you are "used to" back in your home country, Dr Hans you really made this experience so much easier then I could have ever imagined, what seemed like the worst thing to happen to me, being incredible scared and in pain you managed to take that all a way in an instant and make me see that it really was all going to be okay.

Thank you not only for my perfectly healed foot Dr Hans, but for showing me such genuine kindness and compassion every single time I saw you.

Diagnosis - Spiral fracture of the tibia - conservative management

Whilst on holidays (we are from the Netherlands) our year old daughter fell unluckily. By chance we were given an appointment with Dr. Hans Fuchs. From the very first moment we felt really happy about this. He quickly made a clinical diagnosis which was confirmed by x-ray. Dr. Fuchs made our daughter feel very comfortable getting her plaster. And to us he explained everything very well and things were arranged quickly and smooth. Dr. Fuchs is a real people's doctor that many can take an example of!

Diagnosis - ACL & MCL tear - operative (arthroscopic) ligament reconstruction

I tore my right ACL and MCL last February 2017 and as a skateboarder who competes in the amateur league in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, I had to be healthy and in top condition all the time. Having a torn ACL would mean a career ending injury in skating. Thankfully Dr. Hans Fuchs and his team of professionals did such a remarkable job on my ACL and MCL reconstruction, that 6 weeks into the surgery, I am able to jog and jump. I am recovering at such a fast pace that I will be able to skate again after 10months. Right now, two months post-surgery my knee is at 80-85%, and beginning to feel like normal again.
