I'm heartbroken to see that my childhood orthopedic surgeon is gone. Dr Hejna performed 4 hip surgeries on me in the 70's starting when I was 12. He gave me his personal phone number to call if I had any worries back then. He was that great of a guy. I am about to have my third hip replacemant at 58, and was hoping I could speak with him. I was looking for that reassuring voice. Much love to his family

I is sad to read of Dr. Hejna passing, he was a Great Man and Surgeon. He had did hip replacements on my wife Maryann in the early 80's and did a great job. I know He will be missed. We pray for Him and His family..
