Will you tell us about one of your favorite patients?

All my favorite stories include a patient overcoming a traumatic hand injury and returning to activities that they didn’t believe they’d be able to do again. I love when patients return to say hello months after treatment and I’m able to hear about what they’ve been able to achieve. My patients are always so motivated and positive. They are an inspiration.
