A RIAO Patient’s Leg-Straightening Story

Meet Karie Obremski. Growing up, she struggled with bowed legs.

It wasn't easy for her. She had pain, both physical and emotional.  But Karie being Karie, that didn't stop her from cheerleading and pursuing just about any other activity she wanted to do.

She had contemplated getting surgery for a while.  And when she decided to pursue that option, she came to the  Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics and John Herzenberg, M.D.

This is her story.

One of the great things about Karie's story is that she didn't let an external fixtator keep her from pursuing normal life, including swimming in the ocean on her vacation.

For more information about the services of the Rubin Institute, visit here.
