"My son Vincent was always a very competitive soccer player, and about 7 yrs old he started complaining of ankle pain. I researched high and low and I was not going to let my son be crippled and in pain . I found Dr Scher at the Hospital for Special Surgery and he worked wonders on my son! He recommended surgery, and while I was afraid , I put my trust in Dr. Scher. Vincent was 10 when he had the first foot done. We prepared for Vincent to be in pain and off his feet for 12 weeks. To our amazement his cast came off in 2 weeks and 2 days later my son was walking!! "
"It was when I realized that soon I would not be able to tie my shoes that I decided it was time to act. The operation and physical therapy could not have gone better. I did suffer from what i believe were very tight "hip flexors" and hot yoga helped resolve that problem. A year later, I ran a 5 mile Turkey Trot. I bought a new bicycle and have resumed "cautious" skiing. "
