Moments after Emily Pool's car accident, she glanced at her contorted hand and wondered if she'd ever play flute again. Her wrist was fractured in six places. At a friend's recommendation, Emily saw an orthopedic trauma surgeon at a Baylor Scott and White hospital. He reviewed the X-rays with her, explaining how screws and a metal plate would secure the delicate bones. After the successful procedure, she worked with a certified hand therapist at Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation to restore the function she needed to play flute. "I'm back to playing. Life is good."
