Dear Dr. Zabinski,
This is Joanna DeSantis, the PT from Nova Care. In December’15 you did a meniscectomy on my R knee. This thank you is long overdue, however I wanted to write, to not only thank you for ﬁxing me, but to thank you for 2 conversations we had, that had a signiﬁcant impact on my racing success! If you recall I was signed up to do the Ironman 70.3 in
Atlantic City on 9/18/16 (my 1st at this distance) and that torn meniscus did not ﬁt into my training plan!
As I write this and reﬂect on the race day, I can’t help but think that this journey started in an OR in December. However, it also made me recall those post op conversations we had, although tough for me to hear, had a signiﬁcant impact on my racing success this season and for these I am grateful to you for:
