Teenage Patient "Back on the Horse" 4 Months After Knee Surgery

Meet our October Patient of the Month! Her name is Noa. She is a horseback rider, runner, skier, and a very hard worker.


Noa is one of the most hardworking and modest teenagers I know, who only just 4 months ago had knee surgery to address her repeated dislocation of her patella. She never complained, put in the work at home and at PT, and all with a smile.


She has now returned to her two loves: distance running and horseback riding, where just this past weekend she was runner up in a competition!


Hard work pays off, so always keep your goals in mind! #getbetterbebetter
