A Cast of Thousands

A Cast of Thousands

The World's Largest Cast on Federal Street September 10, 2016

Last year, orthopaedic specialists at Allegheny Health Network (AHN) mended 26,155 broken bones in western PA—living proof that our cast of thousands can get you back on your feet faster.   

This season, Francisco Cervelli’s injury put him in good company and capable hands. The broken bone in his left hand was treated by one of the top hand surgeons in the country, at Allegheny General Hospital. He was back on the field two weeks ahead of his recovery schedule.

With AHN’s exceptional facilities and coordinated care team, you will be on the mend sooner, and back to work, school, or even behind home plate.   

To celebrate the mending of those 26,155 broken bones, AHN invited recently healed orthopaedic patients to attend the Pirates game on Sept. 10 and sign their names on the World’s Largest Cast on Federal Street before the first pitch.
