Erin P.

Erin wanted to pursue a dance career from an early age. It’s all she ever wanted to do. She was then faced with a closed growth plate that was going to make that a challenge. Erin came to Summit Orthopaedics as a 13 year old middle schooler after she and her family had seen a video on Limb Lengthening and they decided to pursue that course of treatment with Dr. Beaman.

After surgery she faced seven months with an external fixator as her constant companion. “As a kid you are more emotional, you just want to fit in,” she said recently. “I didn’t know anyone to talk to about it, but I had great support from my family. They tried to make it fun. My mom decorated the fixator to make me feel comfortable,” she laughed.

After three and half months there was talk of another surgery since the Achilles was not growing as fast as the bone. Dr. Beaman designed a splint that stretched it out as she was on her way again. “Once I was able to start walking it was a test to see what I was NOT able to do. It was kind of cool that the leg was now even stronger than the other one.”

Erin continued to pursue her goal of dancing professionally and attended musical theatre school in California prior to becoming a Disney performer in both Florida and California theme parks. She now works in a medical office in the Portland area and has completed an internship with the hopes of working a Child Life Specialist. “I wanted to be in the medical field and help children,” she says. “It’s a huge testament to my experience and to Dr. Beaman.”

Joseph M.

Joseph broke his tibia in 2014 and was in danger of losing his lower leg when he came to Summit Orthopaedics. Dr. Beaman surgically repaired his leg and Joseph was placed in a external fixator to complete the healing process.

“I was in a lot of pain and I actually tried to take it off myself once,” he said. “I’m so glad I didn’t. Dr. Beaman helped me through one of the toughest stretches of my life. I want to give back to someone who gave me so much.”

He is a chef, tattoo artist and the creator of the drawing you can see here.

John D.

Unlike most patients, John had to leave the country to find his way to Summit Orthopaedics. While motorcycling in Lima, Peru he was the victim of a hit and run accident and suffered a severely broken leg. “They set the bones with titanium plates and the leg became infected by the time I traveled to Chile,” said John recently. To stabilize the leg so he could return to the Northwest he underwent more surgery. He endured infected bone and plate removal to restart his journey to recovery.

His surgeon in Chile spoke with a colleague in Virginia about where he should go for the next step in his recovery. “The surgeon in Virginia suggested Dr Beaman in Portland,” continued John. “I’m now back hiking in the Balkans strengthening my reconstructed leg. Another satisfied customer.”

That’s three countries, two ends of North America and one external fixator and John is back on his journey.
