A College Athlete Returns to the Game after Foot Surgery

Katie, an avid tennis player, was looking forward to playing tennis during her senior year of college. But, the pain in her foot she managed for years had finally reached its breaking point. Seeking answers from her college athletic training staff, she met MaCalus Hogan, MD, a doctor at the UPMC Foot and Ankle Center.

An MRI showed that Katie had a stress fracture in her mid-foot at the top of the arch. Due to the severity of the fracture, she needed surgery. Dr. Hogan inserted a screw across the fracture and placed Katie’s foot in a soft cast.

After transitioning to a boot and crutches and staying off her foot for eight weeks, Katie’s foot was healed. She returned to tennis for the spring season and ended her college career on a high note.
