Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.
I was airlifted from Wenatchee, Washington after a bad snowboarding accident. I overshot a jump and landed flat, breaking my right hip, left femur and sustaining a concussion.
What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?
The Doctors and the teams were awesome. They put me back together!
What can you do now that you could not do before surgery? Have you been able to return to your hobbies or sports at the same level as pre-injury or at an even higher level?
I can walk. I go to physical therapy twice a week and I am looking forward to opening day of snowboarding. Yes! I will be able to snowboard and skateboard again soon.
What advice would you like to share with a patient with a condition such as yours who is considering surgery?
Get the surgery done and start recovery.
