Matthew, Active High School Basketball Player
In June 2014, Matthew Jayroe was ecstatic after making the Northside Methodist JV basketball team as an eight-grader. However, in late July, Matthew suffered a devastating injury from a glass cut which resulted in the loss of nerve function from his heel through his first three toes. Avance® Nerve Graft as well as AxoGuard® Nerve Connector were used to repair Matthew’s damaged nerve tissue. Matthew is now back to being an active teenager, running, climbing trees and playing basketball.
