"At the end of August I was enjoying a long weekend in Nantucket when my friends and I decided it would be fun to rent motor scooters to explore the island. It was fun until the very end of the day when my scooter skidded and I landed on my right foot (as well as my knee, hip, elbow and head). I knew immediately that I had done a lot of damage to my foot. After being rushed to the local hospital and a full workup I was told that I would need surgery to repair the broken bones in my foot."
"As a teenage athlete, I suffered from chronic shoulder dislocations. After TWO unsuccessful Putty-Platt procedures, I dislocated during a semi-pro football game and was taken to NY Hospital's Emergency Room. After many unsuccessful attempts to reduce my shoulder, the decision was made to sedate me as the attempts were very painful. After meeting with the late Dr. John Marshall, the then NY Giants Orthopedic Physician, he decided to take me on as a patient. We discussed the new concept of Sports Medicine and I would be one of his first patients. "
"I was hit by a car while joyriding on my favorite Razor scooter. After the accident, doctors said I would never walk again. Without Dr. Wellman's bravery, I wouldn't be here today. "
"Dr Fragomen is a highly skilled, compassionate doctor. He could have turned me away but he didn't! He is the best!"
