Patient Named Comeback Player of the Year Just One Year After UCL Surgery with Dr. Christopher Ahmad

Jake Weintraub, a patient of Columbia Orthopedics provider Christopher S. Ahmad, MD, was recently named Comeback Player of the Year just one year after undergoing ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) repair surgery. Before his surgery, he was pitching mid-80’s fastballs but pain from his elbow rapidly deteriorated his performance on the field.

I went to see Dr. Ahmad at Columbia Orthopedics and he reassured me that after surgery and some hard work I would be able to return to playing at the same level or even better. 6 months later I was finally able to return to sports. 

 

I went to see Dr. Ahmad at Columbia Orthopedics and he reassured me that after surgery and some hard work I would be able to return to playing at the same level or even better. 6 months later I was finally able to return to sports. Tearing my ACL was a horrible thing but it also made we work harder to get back into shape. With the support of Dr. Ahmad and his team I was able to make the JV Lacrosse Team where I was later named Captain. That season I scored 50 goals in 15 games and was named the MVP. I am also the only girl on a boy’s ice hockey team. I want to thank Dr.
