My name is Orin, I am 40 and a competitive semi-professional climber. I feel and landed directly on the ground, made up of sandstone rock and granite, not a soft place to land. The worst of the damage came to my left foot, the first point of contact with the ground. My heel had been crushed, to a level that made the first orthopedic surgeon in Bend, Oregon say “I cannot work on this injury”. I was then referred up to Seattle to meet with a Dr. Mankey. Dr. Mankey’s surgery and skill in repairing my heel have let me chase the things I love, and do them like I was never injured. He gave me the greatest gift a person can receive, a chance to chase your dreams and follow the path to adventure.
