- Dr Gauvain did a ligament repair on my ankle and it was the best experience! I met with him on a Friday, and was in the OR that next Thursday. 10+ years of living with torn ligaments and now I feel like I have a completely different ankle and I could not be more happy about it! I feel so much more stable. Thank you aft Gauvain for not only fixing my ankle, but walking me through the whole process and putting me at ease.
