Meet this month’s patient in the spotlight, Sam Shaheen!
Sam owns and operates Shaheen’s, a 4th generation department store located in The Springs Store on Breckenridge Lane in Louisville, KY. Established in 1922, Shaheen’s has continued to serve the Louisville community with their clothing needs by offering custom in-house embroidery and work apparel. Throughout the pandemic, they have been deemed essential because of the work they do for area hospitals.
Recently, Sam suffered from a large Achilles tendon tear. While he can’t point to the exact cause of the injury, Sam suspects it is due in part to the many years he used to compete in road races, (racking up 60 miles a week) as well as a fractured leg from his time in the Army.
Luckily, Sam is recovering nicely after receiving a stem cell injection from Dr. Grossfeld. At the age of 68, Sam enjoys keeping up with his yard and playing a round of golf in his spare time.
