Greg Young, Redding, CT – limb lengthening surgery
The events that transpired since my horrific ski accident left me feeling as though I would never walk again much less ski with my children. I had shattered both my tibia and fibula, and had eight surgeries prior to visiting Dr. Fragomen’s office. It has now been nine months since my last surgery and I am at Sunday River, a ski resort in Maine. I have donned my skis, and am skiing with my 11 year-old daughter, who wants to be a professional snow board rider when she grows up. This has been a very special weekend.

This weekend also served as a trial run, as my girlfriend, Cathy and I are getting married, slope-side, in December. All four of our children will be present. All this has been made possible by the hard work of Dr. Fragomen and all his colleagues at Hospital for Special Surgery. Without the dedication of his group, I am convinced prosthesis was in my future.
