“Thanks to OSTI and all their knowledge of my surgery and the recovery process. They developed a program that helped me implement a very effective recovery, and I am proud to say that it was one of the best things I have ever done! It was very impressive to see how they made everyone feel special and how they really cared about each individual as they helped them get the most out of their recovery. With OSTI leading the way I was able to recover all my activities and so much more.”
