“In the last six years I have suffered two skiing related injuries, completely tearing my ACL in each knee. The first time was more traumatic since it was new and little scary. Dr. Marc Fineberg took the time to put me at ease by fully discussing my options, both surgical and non-surgical, and the recovery with me. In 2009, he reconstructed my right ACL, taking the time during surgery to give me as minimal scarring as possible. Post-surgery, he and his team saw me through my recovery and in six months’ time I was 100% and pain free. I am an avid runner and was pleased to return to the sport I loved. In an effort to take better care of my knees, I started cross training, biking and swimming. Thanks to my ACL surgery and the full confidence Dr. Fineberg gave me in my repaired knee, I am now a triathlete. I was also able to return to skiing without any need for a brace or other support devices. Unfortunately, after six years I got a little over confident with my skiing and ended up tearing my other ACL. Without hesitation, I called Dr. Fineberg again. Dr. Fineberg explained that there had been some advancement in the procedures for performing the surgery since he saw me last and again fully explained my options. In 2015, he reconstructed my left ACL using the most recent, state of the art techniques. I am pleased to say that this recovery was even better than the last. I am again back to 100% and pain free. I am able to fully perform my daily functions both at home and work without limitation and I have returned to running, biking, swimming, sailing and yoga. I am sure that I will ski again, just a little more cautiously.

My experience with Dr. Fineberg and UBMD Orthopaedics has been extremely positive. The front office is efficient, professional and considerate of my time as a patient. Dr. Fineberg, his PA Greg Burkhard and his Administrative Assistant MaryJo, take a personal interest in their patients and are responsive to patient concerns and questions. It was also very convenient and comfortable to be able to have my X-rays and MRI performed on site in the UBMD Orthopaedics Office. Dr. Fineberg prides himself on providing innovative, comprehensive and personalized care designed to return his patients to their desired level of functioning. He has done that for me twice and I will be forever grateful.”
