How Choosing Amputation Gave a New Jersey Dad His Life Back
After a devastating football injury led to decades of chronic pain, Gary Yerman chose to undergo a specialized amputation at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, allowing him to keep up with his kids — and compete as a triathlete.
"Being able to do gymnastics in my condition was a way to prove to myself and others that I’m not fragile or different from everyone else.”
“To be able to say today that I am an athlete; I have scoliosis; and most importantly, I didn't let it stop me means more than you can ever imagine.”
