Rob Gronkowski Has Surgery

0

The NFL and Orthopedic Surgeons go hand in hand.  Most of the injuries that occur on the field (besides the concussions) end up getting treated by an Orthopedic Surgeon of some kind (the most prominent being Dr. James Andrews who has become world-famous for his work with professional athletes in all sports.)

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is no different.  Gronk broke his arm on the last play of the Patriots game against the Indianapolis Colts two weeks ago, and went to see several different Orthopedic Surgeons over the next few days to online casino see what could be online casino australia done about it (i.e. if he could play through it or if he needed surgery right away.)  Dr. Thomas Gill ended up being responsible for treating Gronkowski, both setting the arm as well as inserting the plate to stabilize it.  He”s expected to miss 4-6 weeks but, given his freakish rate of healing thus far in his career, it would surprise no one if even 4 weeks was a fairly conservative estimate.

Zoc Doc Helps Orthopedic doctors everywhere!

1

Zoc Doc is an amazing online feature that makes it easy to book your appointment from your computer. In what is essentially a Yelp for doctors, Zoc Doc allows you to set your zip code, the specialty you’re looking for, and the healthcare provider you use, to help you find and locate all of the doctors in and around your area.

It also displays reviews from others who have gone to that particular office, so just in case you haven’t had time to ask around, Zoc Doc will provide that data for you!

This is really important because we at Island Orthopedics understand the importance of making our patients, and anyone else visiting our site, aware of the tools that are out there to help make their lives easier.  It’s always nice to see this type of innovation because so often, people are leery of finding a doctor they can trust.  If nothing else, people can use the system to find the names of doctors in their area.  Currently Zoc Doc hasn’t launched its scheduling feature in Hawaii, but you can still use its search engine capabilities to locate doctors anyway.  Sometimes having a name is more than half the battle.
