I was a member of a nationally ranked swim team and had just won the Met PGA golf 9-hole Championship.In September of 2013, I suffered a major elbow injury. Dislocating my left elbow by landing on an out-stretched arm on a trampoline, I managed to rip my medial epicondyle completely off the humerus, damaging my tendons and ligaments, and displacing the ulnar nerve. The dislocation
completely bent my elbow in the exact opposite direction of its normal
position! I was in pain and devastated.
Dr. Green took care of me at HSS and reconstructed my elbow, screwing the broken bone back in place and repairing and re-positioning my tendons and
nerve. Dr. Green gave me great care, lots of reassurance and
encouragement, and within six months (and some physical therapy) I was
making the podium at a national swim event. In 2014, I won the
Westchester County Swim Conference 14 & U 100 yard backstroke,
breaking a minute for the first time in this event. My elbow is still
going strong, and I have now participated in two seasons of high school varsity
swimming, and a season of varsity golf. This past summer (2016), I won
the 17 & U 100 backstroke at the Westchester County Swim
Championships, as well as broke 80 for the first time in a golf tournament.
Thank you Dr. Green for your skill and encouragement. You put me back
in the game! You're the BEST!
