At the age of 10, Grace suffered a gymnastics injury that caused severe lower limb trauma. She underwent two surgeries at other facilities to resolve the original injury and complications.
As a result of recurring pain and numbness in her foot, Grace and her mom visited Dr. Feldman for a second opinion. He found that the injury had stunted her growth plate and the size of her fibula was insufficient for protecting her ankle. He performed Grace's third surgery, an epiphysiodesis procedure, to resolve her growth plate issues.
Since her surgery, Grace has been doing very well and in addition to returning to what she loves, gymnastics, she is also now running track.
