As the number of female athletes increases, so do the number of ACL tears in the knee, prompting reconstruction surgery rates to rise three times faster in women.
Condition: Torn bicep tendon
Interests: baking, hockey, hunting
"As the owner of Modern Pastry Shop, a bakery in Boston, I am constantly using my arms and hands while working. Kneading dough, whipping creams, and frosting cakes are just a few of the things I am doing around the clock. When I tore my bicep while on vacation, I completely lost use of my right arm. Since I couldn’t use my arm, my ability to work at the bakery was down to minimal, light duty, and I was no longer able to do what I loved, and more importantly, what I needed to do.
Thankfully, Dr. Oh was able to change all of that. He gave me hope that he would be able to fix my bicep damage and get me back on the work bench in due time. Not only was Dr. Oh personable, he made me feel like I wasn’t just another patient. He took the time to explain the options, processes, and what to expect during rehabilitation. He was there to answer any questions and help me through any concerns.
I am now back to work and 100% healed, all thanks to Dr. Oh and his wonderful team."
