  • Post card from our patient-

    Patient very Happy

    “Dr. Bruce- It’s been almost 4 months to the day I injured my knee on a landing.  I’m writing to you to first of all, thank you for your help.  You and your staff were incredibly helpful!  Second of all, I wanted to let you know that I am back in the air, knee brace and all.  I haven’t started doing tandems yet but my knee is doing great.  I’m back to weights, running and pylometrics.  Thanks again!” – Blue skies, B.A.

  • “I was in your offices today to have Dr. Bruce take a look at my knee. He was so wonderful to me! He took a middle aged woman from fear and nervousness to basic understanding through his step by step explanations. I was emotional (ok crying! J) through most of the visit, but be hung in there with me, and helped me to see that all was less painful/stressful than I thought.


    I really appreciate everyone in your office today from the lady at the front desk who took my insurance card and i.d. and patient information, to Martha who took my x-rays, of course to Dr. Bruce, to those of you that smiled at me in your office hallways. Thank you for creating such a friendly environment.


    In fact when I got home this afternoon, my husband had the following article pulled up on the computer, and it was an article by Dr. Bruce!


    Thank you again, and Happy Easter to everyone there!” – Respectfully written, C. B.

  • “Place to go in Round Rock for sport medicine (rating 5 out of 5)


    Dr. Bruce was very thorough and friendly. His diagnosis and recommendations were spot on. The Dr. was running about 45 minutes behind, but it was worth the wait. Office was clean and staff was friendly. I would definitely return.” – D. R.

  • “I just wanted to thank you for being such a good Doctor. You are compassionate and kind, and I know you have high moral values. We need more Doctors like you. I pray God bless you in every way.” – Sincerely, J.N.

  • “Incredible Physician!

    In the 1980s I worked for Richard B. Caspari, M.D., a world-renowned innovator in the arena of orthopaedics and sports medicine, as well as the Olympic team physician who repaired a bucket handle tear in Mary Lou Retton’s meniscus (a tendon in the knee) 4 weeks before the 1984 Olympics. When I met Erik Bruce, M.D., I knew almost immediately that I’d met a young surgeon who has the capacity to eclipse Dick Caspari’s success. Dr. Bruce’s gentle approach (a rarity among orthopaedic surgeons), his honesty, his exceptional skill and his complete dedication to his patients has produced an excellent result only 6 weeks after a very complicated right rotator cuff repair. This man is a winner and we need to do everything we can to keep him right here in Round Rock, Texas!” – N. B.

  • “Dr. Bruce and Staff,
    When I first wrote this note I was still working through the physical therapy portion of the shoulder repair that you began in late April of this year, I have since completed physical therapy and realized that I have not posted this note as I had intended, for that I am sorry, for this testimonial and note of thanks are long overdue.


    If I may, I would like to briefly recap why I sought your help for the benefit of any who might read this note and testimonial, and also to help them understand why I feel it important to write about my experience with you and the healing that has taken place.


    When I came to your office for the very first time, I was in severe pain. I had injured myself in such a way, that I had torn the bicep in my right arm, and worse yet, I believed that I had also torn the rotator cuff in my right shoulder as well, and generally undoing a previous surgery which was completed years before to repair it. Needless to say, I was messed up. My range of motion was severely compromised, I couldn’t sleep at night from the pain, and simple day to day tasks were painful and sometimes even impossible to do. To add to it, all these limitations were affecting my performance at work.


    Now, as they say the rest of the story. From the moment I first met you I could tell that you were a compassionate and caring Doctor, but also one who is straight forward, which I appreciate, and also one that is not going to take any others evaluation at face value before you had studied the problem and arrived at your own conclusion, finding that you either agree, or disagree with their finding. So with that said, you heard my complaints of pain, and yes, even my evaluation of my own needs, as well as what I thought needed to occur for treatment, and in addition, the opinion, albeit somewhat out of date by another Doctor, and set about making your plan to help me regain my health. That plan included a thorough exam, some further diagnostics through imaging, a reminder that not every issue is resolved through surgery, and some interim medication to help control the pain. A quick word about the medication, the medication that you prescribed for me was in the form of a medicated cream, of your own formula, and compounded a local compounding pharmacy, not a heavy narcotic pain killer which often leaves one with dulled senses. I would have bet money that a topical cream would have not worked, as had been my previous experience, but yours did, and I got significant relief instantly once I began using it, and I mean significant relief!


    I completed the imaging studies and we met again to discuss what was determined. I recall that after reviewing the studies that you concluded in this case surgery was indicated, however I also recall that because of the extensive damage you were concerned about the amount of gain the surgery would net, and cautioned regarding expectations of mobility and pain reductions. I most especially recall that you told me that you could give a whole lot of technical jargon to explain my medical condition; you however instead, simply told me that in Laymen’s terms, “You are all jacked up.” Now that is something I understood very clearly.


    As indicated, the surgery was performed in late April, and we are now at September 1st, and I have completed physical therapy now and I cannot believe how much progress I have made.


    My range of motion is nearing all that I had prior to my injury, not to mention that I am pain free. I sleep well at night, and my life has for all intents and purposes returned to normal.


    Dr. Bruce, you and your entire staff have always treated me with the utmost consideration, care, kindness, respect, and of course extremely skilled medical advice and care, and I have every confidence that anyone who seeks treatment with you would also receive the same. I know that it is not enough for all you have done, but please accept my sincerest thanks.” – Reg Sides


  • “Thank you so much for taking care of me. I know I make things a little harder than some patients, but you bent a little here and there and gave me some extra help and I will never forget that! I’ve been around a few doctors, more than my share at age 52 – and you are number one in my book!” – T. B.
