Katie’s Care Went the Extra Mile

When collegiate tennis player Katie learned the persistent pain in her left foot was actually a stress fracture, she turned to the UPMC Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. With UPMC ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for orthopaedic excellence by U.S. News & World Report, Katie knew she was in good hands.

After surgery, Katie had to spend eight weeks off her feet. Although she was unable to play in her fall tennis season, she returned to the court in the spring and ended her collegiate career healthy. While off the court, Katie had the opportunity to shadow her orthopaedic surgeon, MaCalus V. Hogan, MD, in the operating room. She now attends medical school.
