Where the rubber meets the road

How EXOGEN® helped this motorcycle enthusiast make his comeback

C.W. Smith
Morrisville, N.C.

When Harley Davidson rider C.W. Smith slammed his bike into a stone bridge and snapped his right leg, Smith’s doctor gave it to him straight. “He said it was like a shark came and took a hunk of my bone away.”

The accident left Smith laid up with a break that wouldn’t heal, in part because his smoking habit was slowing the process. Smith was preparing for his third surgery — one that would use part of his hipbone — when a neighbor made a suggestion. She told him to try EXOGEN.

Smith wasn’t sure at first, but he also didn’t want a third surgery, so he did some research. When he learned that the device had been shown to help smokers,11 he called his doctor, who prescribed the device and put him on the road to healing.

“I was skeptical at first, but this saved me from a third surgery,” he said. “It’s been proven to do its job.”
