Patient Stories

Christopher C. Annunziata, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I am now a world record holder in the deadlift. Dr. Annunziata fixed my shoulder ten years ago so I could lift weights with my son, a world record holder in the bench press. I've gotten stronger and now hold multiple world records in 55-59 year old 198 pound class drug-free powerlifting federations.

On 8 October 2016 in Erie, PA, I successfully deadlifted 575.4 lbs (161 kg) for another world record. I could not compete and achieve these records without the great work Dr. Annunziata did on my shoulder.
