Ben Sturgill, a former UNH Athlete of the Year and current Chaplin at UNH, underwent VMO (vastus medialis obliquus) surgery with Dr. Buckley for kneecap instability while he was on the basketball team at UNH.
Ten years later, Ben was in car accident and injured the same knee. Following his injury, Ben saw Dr. Webb for a consultation. After seeking second opinions and weighing his options carefully, Ben decided to have Dr. Webb performed his surgery, MPFL (medial patellofemoral ligament) reconstruction.
Having to deal with the stress and aftermath of car accident which included a concussion, Ben really appreciated the care he received from Dr. Webb. Because of his concussion, he once had his appointment times mixed up and came in to the office as Dr. Webb was going to lunch. “Dr. Webb met me on his way out and turned around to go back in for the exam. I felt like Dr. Webb spent time with me, never making me feel rushed, and like he gave me special attention.” Ben said he also felt that he identified with him as a college athlete and really understood what he was going through.
Following surgery, Ben had a great physical therapy experience and is recovering very well. He will be able to exercise, play basketball again, and will be able to play sports and be active with his kids.
“My injury was so bad, I didn’t know if I would be able to play basketball with my kids. The doctors at Seacoast Orthopedics and Sports Medicine are not only compassionate and caring, but they are experts at what they do. Thanks to them, I’m on the road to recovery and will have many years of playing ball with my boys.”
