He needed a second opinion.

TJ was playing lacrosse with an injured ankle. When a doctor recommended a surgery that seemed too extreme, TJ reached out to SpecialtyCare Connect to find a surgeon who could give him a second opinion.

TJ LACROSSE STORY 010818

Meet TJ

TJ was a college student with a passion for lacrosse. He played the sport his whole life and was following his dreams to play at a college level.

The Challenge

During his freshman year at college, TJ played most of his lacrosse season with an injury he didn't know he had. The first specialist he saw recommended a risky surgery for his torn tendon that just didn't seem like the right choice for him.

The Solution

TJ, feeling unsatisfied with his diagnosis, contacted SpecialtyCare Connect to get matched to a specialist for a second opinion about his treatment plan and was able to receive cutting-edge treatment.

The Result

TJ had a successful lacrosse season his sophomore year with no issues to his ankle. He now plays professional lacrosse with the Rochester Rattlers and has never felt stronger.
