Dr. Jeff Backes, an orthopedic surgeon for Orthopedic ONE and a faculty member for Mount Carmel's Orthopedic Residency Training Program, was recently recognized as a Guardian Angel by a former patient.

“Dr. Backes made my recovery process easier, he gave me a fair point of view from both sides and he understood what I was going through. He knew how the work I put in could, and did, speed up my progress. He was always giving me things I could do when I was recovering and helping me to get stronger. I am very grateful!”

The Guardian Angels program was created by the Mount Carmel Foundation in 2009 to give grateful patients and their families an opportunity to recognize their caregivers.
