At the age of 63, I was jumping on a trampoline and ruptured my left quadriceps tendon. I went to TCO Urgent Care in Blaine, and the staff there took great care of me. I then made an appointment with Dr. David Hartigan at TCO Maple Grove a few days later. Dr. Hartigan explained the details of my injury, the surgical intervention, and what rehabilitation would look like after surgery. He also spent time answering all of my questions, and was very comforting and confident that my surgery would be successful. During all of my follow-up visits, Dr. Hartigan explained in detail how my recovery was progressing. I feel he really celebrated my successes with me. Due to the severity of the injury, I was concerned I would not be able to walk normal, go up and down stairs, exercise, or golf again. One year later, I am doing all the things I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do! Rehab was, and still is, a very integral part of my successful recovery. After a few months of physical therapy, I continued with a strength and mobility regimen with a Certified Athletic Trainer, Ramon Rios. I have fully returned to all of the activities I participated in prior to my injury. Thank you, Dr. Hartigan for your skills, caring attitude, and kindness. You are a rock star!
