State Champ after ACL surgery

For Lucy Singleton, ACL surgery could not have come at a worse time.  "COVID happened and knocked me out of my junior year, so not only did I miss sophomore because of my knee, but I also missed junior year, 2 WHOLE years. My senior year rolled around and I must say it went very well, all thanks to you [Lucy's physical therapist, Matt Gingras] and Dr. Noyes. I won my Region in cross country and went on to place 8th in state." Lucy also went on to win state in the 800 meter run in Track & Field.

Lucy will attend Morehead State University in the fall and will run varsity cross country and track for the D1 school. She also plans to major in exercise science and become a physical therapist. 

"A big thanks to you and Dr. Noyes. You all are the reason I was able to come back from my injury and have so much success. I really didn’t think I was going to be able to, but you never gave up on me and I’m thankful beyond measures. I hope you are happy and healthy, God Bless and thank you again."

Lacrosse Player with Patellar Subluxation

Austin’s mom searched far and wide to find a doctor who could help with her son’s multiple patellar subluxations.  Several doctors had already told him to just do what he could and keep playing.  After extensive online research, she found the Noyes Knee Institute and decided to make the 8 hour drive from Lititz, PA to see Dr. Frank Noyes.  Two months later with a 4-day stay in Cincinnati, Austin went through MPFL reconstruction surgery and initial therapy with the NKI team.  Dr. Noyes and his staff worked with Austin’s therapist at home to get him back on his feet.  One year later, Austin is back to playing high school lacrosse and went on to win the All Star 2nd Team Award for Face-Off Specialist!

We cannot say enough about our experience with your team and how grateful Austin is to have a normal knee now and be an athlete again! Thank you for everything! I am so glad we found Cincinnati Sports Medicine.” - Jessica Barto
