Infant Born with Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the Tibia

Gabriella was born with Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the Tibia. Learn about her whole story in the video below, and see her progress after a decade of care and treatment by Dr. Vitale.

“He was looking at her quality of life overall. He saw a whole person. He didn’t just see a leg that’s broken, “let’s try to fix it” or “let’s amputate it.” He was really looking at the whole person, and that, to me, was very important.”

“You don’t go very many places where a surgeon will email you on a Saturday to check on your child and see how they’re doing. It’s unheard of to me, and it means so very much to know that [Dr. Vitale is] thinking about her and how she’s doing.”

—Gabriella’s Mom

“They never forget you. And it’s always nice because they know your name…They know you, and you feel very comfortable with them. They’re always very caring, and they show that they care about you.”
