Emily Poole

A severely broken wrist repaired. A musical ability restored.




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 Rehab to restore the function she needed to play flute. "I'm back to playing. Life is good."
