In the past few years, Dean Story experienced shoulder pain that was affecting his life. After getting it checked out, he learned that not only was the cartilage gone but there was also a mass. Pathology reports indicated that it was a chondrosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that needed to be removed. Dr. Daniel Lerman, Orthopedic Oncologist at the Institute for Limb Preservation, in partnership with the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute, at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center was onboard to remove the tumor.
Victoria Story began to experience issues with her hip and leg, including intermittent pain in her left leg. Despite trying yoga and a variety of other options, the pain continued to get worse and worse. After speaking with four surgeons, a friend recommended her to Dr. Kareem Sobky with OrthoONE at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center. Victoria found him to be a “breath of fresh air” with how well he listened to her and her concerns. Victoria and Dr. Sobky agreed hip surgery was the best option and Victoria was amazed at how “incredibly simple the experience was” from surgery to recovery. From start to finish, from the valet that greeted her to the post-op nurses that cared for her, Victoria is incredibly grateful for her wonderful experience at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s.
