Irma - Elbow Fracture

The morning after learning that I had fractured my elbow in a serious bike crash, I called my knowledgeable primary care physician who practices at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and who over the years has sent me to excellent physicans. He referred me to Dr. William Levine.

Owing to the nature of my situation, i was seen by Dr. Levine within 4 hours of calling his office. He sent me for a CT scan and confirmed the fact that without the surgery I would lose range of motion and likely suffer from arthritis. There was never a question in my mind as to what I would do - I wanted to resume cycling and my gym workouts. At 64 years of age, it is imperative that I stay fit. In fewer than 10 weeks subsequent to the surgery, my elbow was completely healed and I was back cycling at Central Park. In addition, as a result of Dr. Levine's excellent skills, I have complete range of motion of my left elbow!

Again, because Dr. Levine is so proficient, I never experienced pain. Dr. Levine turned what could have been a life scarring injury into an incident that with time will become a distant memory.
