In my experience, Cleveland Clinic is where you go for the best of the best. Hopefully this Doc got it figured out for Bennett. Had to be a difficult procedure. A friend of mine just broke their wrist/lower arm and had a titanium plate and 7 pins installed. Their arm looked like a jigsaw puzzle that this guy had to put back together, pieces broke off, rotated on every axis and shifted around. Nasty stuff, but this guy was awesome, the after X-Ray looked like it wasn't broke except for the hairlines around where the bones should go back together, everything lines back up perfectly, except for the Wolverine looking plate and pins... I told them to ask the Doc to spring load those suckers. On a serious note, the Doc is an artist. But my friend won't be fully healed for at least 6 months, so I hope Bennett didn't get the Wolverine special also.
Didn't Bennet say it wasn't ever broken? hand or wrist. i thought he made that clear when everyone told him to drink more milk after the season ended he tweeted "For the record, I've never broken my wrist....... Or hand...... And i don't like milk". could he have had tendon or ligament damage and they tried rehab before but when he damaged it again he had to get it fixed for real? Not sure thats better than breaking it though.
