Orthopaedic Patient Stories
No one tells a story better than those who lived it.
Patients treated by the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute team at Abington Health share their personal stories here to encourage and empower others who have bone, joint or spine problems.
We hope you find their experiences helpful.
