  • Labral Hip Repair

“Dr. Drew Warnick helped make me 110% better. I suffered a long time with hip pain and never new what it was. Dr. John Gross, my family doctor, had great faith in All Children's Hospitals radiologist Dr. Jeff Clarke for sports medicine who found exactly the issue I had. Believe me we took every conservative measure prior to having surgery. Once I was referred to Dr. Warnick I was already on my way to recovery. I suffered everyday from hip pain. Running was no longer possible for me but it was difficult to get through my school day with the pain from walking all through the campus. I was nervous about the surgery but happy it finally came.

On 4/26/2011 I had the surgery that changed my life. I had to stay on crutches for 6 weeks and that was very hard to keep myself restricted to. However I did. Even when I know longer wanted to be near those horrible things, I embraced them as my next journey to being able to run cross country again. I went to therapy every week and did all home exercises they asked me to do. In order to recover from this surgery it is very important you follow the instructions of your surgeon and your therapies. The right program makes it possible to go back to the activities you enjoy. For me the tear was able to be fixed with bleeding the bone border and placing anchors which is the idea way to fix this type of tear.

Once you are done, you will have amazing pictures to share for the rest of your life. I was very worried I would not be able to run cross country this year. The best thing happened, my coach, and parents (mom and Jeff) did everything they could to be sure I had what was needed to reach each goal set by my physical therapist. This approach definitely kept the plan on track. By mid-October I was given full clearance to run. After this time, I actually began my full training and each week for each race I was improving on my time.

I was happy to end this season on a great note. Dr. Warnick fixed me and gave me two more high school years to improve and become an amazing cross country athlete. I can not thank him enough for what he did. It was my dream come true- to run again. If you find you need this surgery, it is difficult to find any lengthy information on it which includes recovery. What I have been told it is a relatively new surgery and does not have a lot of historical clinical data standing behind it today. However if you are fortunate to have Dr. Warnick, All Children's Hospital therapies, and many other great team members, you will be on the right track to recovery. The key to success is listening to what you have to do and when you do it - give it 110%. The results will amaze you and will be so worth it. I hope next year and the year after I am able to post updates to my recovery just for Dr. Warnick. I want him to know he is amazing and I can not thank him enough for getting me through all of this. Thank you and believe in the crafted skilled surgeon for this surgery.

With all my respect, Tiffany Kern”

  • Open Reduction Internal Fixation of my son's right foot

“My son (age 13) fell through a skylight 15ft over the Thanksgiving break and shattered all his toes in his right foot, fractured his tibia and his left wrist. He was brought to All Childrens Hospital in St. Pete under the care of Dr. Paul Benfanti. Dr. Benfanti had the painstakingly hard task of repairing my son's foot.

It's been about a month and a half and my son is on the long road to recovery.

Everyone that we came in contact with at All Childrens and The Orthopaedic Group have been awesome. Dr. Benfanti came very highly recommended by his peers in this specialty. We could not be happier.

My son has played football (QB) since he was 7 and we put our faith in Dr. Benfanti's hands to repair his foot so he can play football again next fall.

Thank you to everyone at All Childrens Hospital, Dr. Benfanti and his staff!

“Dear Dr Hahn,

A great big "thank you" to you and the entire staff at Children's Orthopedic. Thanks to you my son's broken arm didn't interfere with our vacation plans. The waterproof cast was terrific! We are fortunate to have you in our community and we will continue to come to you with our three boys when needed.

  • Broken hand, two broken arms, inflamed knee cartilage

“We have three kids all of who play soccer. My children ages are 18, 15, and 9. We have been coming to Children's Orthopaedic for years. Our daughter has been treated twice, once for a broken arm and the other for two broken bones in her hand both due to sports injuries. Our son was also treated for a broken arm.

In each case, we were tended to right away and given the best care. The kids were nervous but the staff and Doctors put them at ease. Their injuries healed perfectly and the follow up care was tremendous. We have since gone back with our other son for treatment on his knee due to sports camp.

We are a sports family and there is no other place we would trust our kids to than Children's Orthopaedic & Scoliosis Surgery Associates! I am glad you are here in Tampa!

  • Calcaneal Osteotomy

“ 3 years ago I decided to take a big step to try and correct my bad feet. I did so and the surgery had went wrong with my previous doctor. Now, Dr. Colonel Paul Benfanti U.S. Army (ret) has corrected my feet and redid the surgery. The result is I now walk perfectly!

I don't know what I would have done without Dr. B's help.

Thanks Dr. B

Aj M.”
