After being on the podium twice for the US National Championships for archery, I thought my dreams of ever being on Team USA for a World Championship had ended. Within six months, I broke my wrist and both thumbs in three different accidents. It was crazy. I would go to Dr. Korsh Jafarnia and get over an injury and then something else would happen. At least, I knew who to call. I think Dr. Jafarnia thought it was as unbelievable as I did. He always kept me thinking positive and said we would get it fixed.

I live just outside Corpus Christi, but it was worth the many trips to Houston. After physical therapy and four surgeries, I was ready to start my archery training again.

I think Dr. Jafarnia always had the time to sit down and explain to me everything he was going to do. His staff was great, to. They always knew who I was…I was that archery kid from Corpus, Tristan.

This past August, I competed on Team USA at the World Championships in Zagreb, Croatia!
Thanks Dr. J. We did it!

My treatment and recovery

After physical therapy and four surgeries, I was ready to start my archery training again. The different fractures occurred over a period of six months. Following the surgeries and rehabilitation, there were several months of training and relearning to shoot archery.

Tip

Never give up.

My Second First

Because of my orthopedic care, I am able to compete in archery, football, roping and hunting again.
