Hard Work Pays Off

What started out as a kind gesture landed 77-year-old Bob Fox at Margaret Mary’s Rehab Center for five weeks of physical therapy. Earlier this summer, the Versailles resident was taking his wife a cup of coffee when he tripped and landed on his left arm. After a visit to Margaret Mary’s emergency department, he soon scheduled an appointment with Orthopaedic Surgeon Nicholas Mirkopoulos, MD to have his shoulder evaluated and learn about his treatment options.
“I was hoping my shoulder would recover without needing surgery,” said Bob, “so I was happy when Dr. Mirkopoulos suggested I try rehab first. My therapists, Amanda and Tiffany, were exceptional. They had me do exercises to increase my strength and mobility. After spending five weeks together, the girls seemed more like friends to me than therapists. My shoulder has also improved tremendously!”
On July 13, Bob officially graduated from his therapy program. To celebrate his progress, he stopped at the local coffee shop to kick back and enjoy a cup of coffee!
