Most memorable patient:

  • It is very hard to pick only one patient because each one leaves a finger print in your heart and each one gives me great memories and experiences. Currently, one of my favorites is Bella. She was born with V.A.C.Te.R.L. abnormalities. She is 2 1/2 and has had over 30+ surgeries. She was born without functional thumbs or radial bones in her arms and hands that deviated at her wrists towards her forearms. Yet, she is the happiest, excited about life, and confident child I have ever met. With the help of therapy and surgeries she is able to feed herself, color, draw, play with toys and dress independently. She is amazing to watch and it is a pleasure to help her achieve all her goals to be independent in life.
