Katie's Foot Stress Fracture

College senior and avid tennis player Katie was looking forward to her last season of playing competitively. However, after living with constant pain in her left foot for three years, she knew it was time to seek answers. 

From the help of her university athletic training staff, Katie was referred to the UPMC Foot and Ankle Center​. After an MRI Scan, her doctor diagnosed Katie with a stress fracture in her navicular bone, which is one of the bones in the mid-foot. 

Due to the severity of the fracture, Katie needed to have surgery. Fortunately for her, Katie's doctor was able to schedule surgery immediately. Kate spent 8 weeks off of her foot to properly recover.

Although she missed the fall season, Katie was able to return to tennis in the spring. As an added bonus to her successful treatment, Katie's doctor let her shadow him in the operating room after he learned she was preparing to enter medical school the following year.
