Comebacks Start Here: Mr. Terry’s Success Story


Recently, Buddy Terry, patient of Dr. Patton, underwent an Anterior Cruciate ligament repair surgery for his right knee injury. Terry successfully underwent surgery and was able to start a regimen of sport specific rehabilitation at Alabama Orthopaedic Clinic Physical Therapy. Thanks to the doctor and staff, and Terry’s willingness to stick to his plan for recovery, he was able to hike to the highest point in Nevada, Boundary Peak.

The hike to the top is about 10 miles round trip with an elavation gain/loss of 6000 vertical feet. This climb includes steep grades, lots of rocky uneven footing and fall potential. Terry wore his Donjoy brace, which is strapped to the pack in the picture only for a short time while he enjoyed the view, to help him during the climb, especially the downhill portion.

Mr. Terry says, “You guys do great work…”. Here at AOC we strive to help individuals get back on their feet, in more ways than one, through all we do and we are so glad to have made it possible for Buddy Terry to get back to doing what he loves.
