Bob Keating was serious about his health. He ran marathons. He lifted
weights. But one day, he lifted too much weight. He heard a “pop”. And
felt immediate and serious pain. He had suffered a complete avulsion
(rupture) - a tendon injury that’s among the worst. That’s when he
turned to doctors who are among the best.
Like every patient at the Bone & Joint Center at Grant Medical
Center, Bob received very specialized care. In his case, from a team of
sports medicine experts. They surgically reattached the tendon. After
some healing time and physical therapy, Bob’s surgically repaired tendon
was almost like new.
Today, Bob is still serious about his health. You’ll find he and his
repaired tendon playing with his 2 young daughters, running marathons,
and lifting weights, albeit perhaps a bit more cautiously than before.
