Columbia Orthopedics Patient Appears On Stage With The Rockettes

December 28, 2015

After being diagnosed with a rare disease, tibial pseudarthrosis, which caused Gabby Mansour's leg to break and not heal, her parents saw doctor after doctor - each suggesting amputation.  Gabbi's parents did not listen to that and found Dr. Michael Vitale of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital who did not want to take that course either.  It took Gabby six years and nine orthopedic surgeries, and this past December, Gabby joined the Rockettes on stage during the Radio City Christmas Spectacular's "New York at Christmas" number.  

As the official pediatric hospital partner of this year's Radio City Christmas Spectacular, NewYork-Presbyterian hosted "Kids' Day" on Monday, December 14th for patients and their families at Radio City Music Hall.  Gabby Mansour featured here, appeared on stage as a background character during the Central Park ice-skating scene.  Before the show, Gabby had a chance to catch up with her doctor, Miachel G. Vitale, MD, who was in attendance with his family.
