Patient Stories: Albert Oh

Patient story

Austin's Story

"People always tell me 'You're so strong, I don't know how you got through it.' I like to say that you never know how strong you are or what you are capable of until you have no choice but to be strong." 

Patient story

Christine's Story

"A piece of advice; if your child has surgery on the dominant hand first, be sure you budget plenty of time to be their caregiver as they will need help with homework, getting dressed, and maybe even eating."
