Brian - AC Separation Reconstruction

Sports have always been a big part of my life. Two years ago, at age fourteen, my shoulder was severely injured in a collision playing lacrosse. After an immediate surgery by a local Doctor in New Jersey, I was told I will never be able to return to sports, and not have full range of motion.  I was so devastated by this outcome, I started exploring my options. Having my Dad successfully treated for cancer at Columbia Presbyterian, he recommended that we see a specialist there.  After careful research, we concluded Dr. Ahmad and his team were the only ones that could possibly help me. Thankfully, Dr Ahmad took on my case, and performed another surgery. The surgery was a success, and throughout the healing process he kept assuring me that I would be able to return to sports.

Thanks to Dr. Ahmad and his team, I am back playing lacrosse at a competitive level, something I never thought I would be able to do.  This year, I am really proud that I have been invited to participate in the Blue Chip 225 Lacrosse Showcase.

I would encourage anyone who is looking for an orthopedic doctor, to seriously consider the Doctors at Columbia Presbyterian.  Personally, I will never go anywhere else.
