Benjamin, 12, was in the car with his mother when another driver ran a red light and crashed into them. Benjamin’s leg was broken. With the bone sticking through his skin, he was rushed into surgery at a nearby hospital. Screws were put in place, his leg was put in a cast and he was released.

Months later, X-rays showed that his bone was not healing, and that the size of the screws was incorrect. Benjamin needed additional surgery, however, his mother didn’t have the money to pay for it. After eight months in the same cast, and with a severe infection, Benjamin and his mother found OIC. Dr. Anthony Scaduto performed the necessary surgery and helped get Benjamin back to doing what he loves best, playing soccer.

At Orthopaedic Institute for Children,
kids get the surgery they need,
regardless of their family's ability to pay.
