“I went to Dr. Watson with a football related foot injury, a lis franc tear. It was a pretty serious injury; it has been known to end professional careers. I was worried about returning for my senior season of football and even being athletic and active throughout the rest of my life. The surgery was a huge success. Thanks to Dr. Watson along with Orthopedic Institute’s trainers, I was able to return for my senior football season ahead of the recovery time schedule without missing a step.”
