    Thank you Dr. Woll and Dr. DaSilva! After a devastating slalom waterski crash and a bad first surgery in Lewis county, Dr Woll did an amazing surgery on my Achilles and lateral tendon so I could ski again! Then, training to ski tournaments again, I tore a meniscus. Back to Rebound and Dr. DaSilva fixed that. Skiing again as good as before the accident, thank you so much!!! I live and work to ski, other doctors didn't seem to care about my passion, Rebound does!

    In the fall of 2004, I went to Hawaii to enjoy 2 weeks of time with family on the Big Island. I Unfortunately fell in one of their warm ponds and broke my right ankle. Not only was my right ankle broken but as time went on, the left side of my body began to compensate and get weak, my left knee eventually gave out. Dr. DeSilva was following me with this intense pain, with injections and therapy. We all did the best we could until we had to make the decision that my knee needed to be replaced. I had my knee replaced in April of 2014 with Dr. DeSilva. I cannot begin to say how much my new knee gave me a bit more freedom with pain free activities. Even though I'm still waiting to receive my new ankle. The patience from the staff, the consideration, careful planning and aftercare from Dr. DeSilva was absolutely outstanding. I would refer all my friends to him and the staff there at Rebound. Even though I am still waiting another major surgery on my ankle in April, I am actually happy and anticipating getting my new lease on life. Even though these are major surgeries the staff and physicians at Rebound have made this an exciting time in my life. I look forward to the new me.

    On 11/6/14 I was sparring in my martial arts class Krav Maga. As I blocked a hook punch with my right arm it dislocated my shoulder and actually tore my labrum off the glenoid bone. I saw Dr. DaSilva and he ended up doing the Bankart repair surgery procedure on 12/19/14. He did an excellent job and after 4 months of physical therapy I am just about at 100%. I cannot thank Dr. DaSilva, the staff and the physical therapy staff enough. You all played an important role to get me back to running, weights and working out. I would refer anyone to Rebound and Dr. DaSilva.. Thank you all again so much!!!!
