My 16-year-old son, Alex, fell on broken glass and severed 8 tendons, severed an artery, severed nerves and lacerated a 9th tendon on his dominant hand. Alex is an award-winning artist and record-breaking athlete who is also passionate restoring his classic car (1972 Maverick). Before Dr. Starr operated on him, I showed him pictures of Alex's artwork and showed him a video of him pole vaulting and I said with tears in my eyes, "This is who you're about to operate on. This is what he could do." He looked at me with his kind eyes and said he'd do his best. After a 5 and a half hour surgery, months of OT rehab and lots of work from Alex, he is able to write, draw and paint with both hands, as well as work on his 1972 Ford Maverick. Oh, and one more thing... he's the single A #1 champion of pole vaulting and #11 all-state. THANK YOU DR. STARR and THANK YOU to DAN, Alex's OT, to whom he gave his pole vaulting gold medal.
