Vincent, a motorcycle enthusiast, went on a ride with friends down a scenic route to Phoenix. But, a few hours into the ride, Vincent’s motorcycle malfunctioned, and he was thrown from the bike, smashing his right hand into a pole before landing face down on a 45-foot embankment.
Hospital surgeons told Vincent’s wife that because his hand was so badly injured, he may need to undergo amputation. “My wife refused,” Vincent recalled. “She would not sign the paperwork to allow them to amputate.”
Hospital staff then consulted with the specialists at The CORE Institute to see what could be done to save Vincent’s hand. The CORE Institute physicians earned the trust of Vincent’s wife and successfully realigned the bone and the joint and reconstructed the joint surface with a combination of plates and screws to restore function.
“Before coming to The CORE Institute, my hand was injured so badly that I thought I would never play guitar again. Now I Can.“
