Patient Stories

Ronald C. Childs, MD

My Story:

Dr. Childs didn't tell me I had to put the barbell down, he worked with me to fix my herniated disk and walked me through recovery so I could continue to lift, train, and compete. I competed in the Pan American Masters in 2015, won a bronze medal at the American Masters in 2015, and am looking forward to competing locally and in the Pan Ams again this summer. I feel this was a great outcome for someone who is almost 50!

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can... compete in masters weightlifting locally, nationally, and internationally.
