Tore my proximal hamstring tendons while waterskiing in July 2016. Complete rupture and 1/2 cm separation. My long relationship with Dr. Metzl, with second opinion from Dr. Kelly, put me on course to avoid surgery and use physical therapy to attempt one hundred percent recovery. Sports include running, skiing, and squash. Running resumed in December, skiing in easy conditions in early January, and off trail hiking to seriously technical skiing in late January. Very satisfying to be back, and very grateful for good care.
