I injured my wrist in a lacrosse game my junior year of high school. Originally, I thought it was just a bad bone bruise. A year later while training for lacrosse I was unable to do some of the basic exercises like push ups. I was advised to see Dr. Wolfe. At my appointment, I was told my scaphoid bone was broken and the lunate bone was rotated out of position. This news was devastating to me. I had recently committed to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Connecticut, and had my upcoming senior season of lacrosse which I was named captain for. I was afraid that my days of playing the game I love would be over. After my surgery and a few months of physical therapy, I was as good as new. I will be a senior this upcoming school year at UCONN. I have played three seasons as a midfielder for my team. I am very thankful for the doctors at Hospital for Special Surgery who were able to get me back on the field!
