Because of my orthopaedic care, I can zipper my coat and hold my mom’s hand.

Ned was hospitalized for a week following a playground accident that resulted in a severe open fracture, vascular trauma and nerve damage.  Ned lost mobility and sensation in his left hand.  Four months later, Ned was hospitalized again and underwent a median nerve transplant.

Because of Ned’s outstanding orthopaedic care, many skills that he’d lost, such as dressing himself, buckling his seatbelt and riding his bike, have returned.  A sense of independence that is so vital to any child’s self-esteem has been restored.

Dr. Benson’s skill, expertise and diligence gave Ned the best chance of recovery from his visible wounds.  But the wounds that are often overlooked – the emotional scars that can result from a trauma –  were eased by Dr. Benson’s compassion, positive demeanor and the comfort of his wonderful therapy dog, Chelsea.
