After Vienne fell off an 8-foot slide, she broke her wrist. While they may seem to be common, fractures are not a routine condition, and are often not set correctly. It wasn't until Dr. Josh Abzug did a second X-ray when they learned Vienne's wrist was broken in 2 spots. After surgery, now Vienne is back to doing what she loves- playing violin (without Dad’s help).
