Success Stories

Dr. Sabrina Strickland at the Hospital for Special Surgery

Here are a few of my patient success stories, which I hope will help future patients understand better what to expect when they come to me for a consultation, surgery, or a second opinion. 

Liam had experienced a lifetime of kneecap dislocations. An avid hockey player, he needed a solution. We completed MPFL reconstruction surgery and he’s back to hockey. Watch his video to learn about his success story.

Mark tried to get exercise every day but was injured when he was trying to change a tire. He was concerned about his ability to be active in sports. Mark had a subpectoral bicep tenodesis and was able to return to his active lifestyle.
