I am very happy we chose the team of doctors, therapists, trainers and staff at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine when our son, Ben, tore his ACL and meniscus. Dr. Wind and his professional staff treated Ben with care and compassion, and their experience in dealing with athletes was evident. After surgery, Ben began his long road of physical therapy and rehabilitation at NFMMC’s Summit Physical Therapy, working with Maragaux and Ken. They knew the protocols and expectations that Dr. Wind had, and they consulted with him when necessary to ensure Ben was recovering as expected. Ben completed physical therapy with a completely “functional” knee, but as an athlete that hadn’t played sports in several months, he wasn’t ready to “return to play” at the higher physical level. The NFMMC’s Competitive Edge’s ACL Bridge Program was the perfect transition to get Ben back on the field. Working one-on-one with athletic trainer, Fernando, provided Ben with the physical and strength training he needed to prepare him for his return. Now that Ben is cleared and back at Lew-Port playing sports again, he is under the watch and care of our athletic trainer, Jason, from NFMMC/UBMD Ortho. Knowing that Jason is there and aware of Ben’s prior injury is reassuring; his knowledge and care for the athletes is second to none. If a problem arises, Jason is there to evaluate and contact Dr. Wind, if necessary. The team at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine has provided Ben with a complete, comprehensive, all-encompassing recovery; they work together for the successful “return to play” of the athlete.
