By May 2016, Dr. Roy’s two- year-old upstart ortho business was booming. Then came June, and a random attack of Guillain-Barre syndrome left her quadriplegic. With the support of her family—who cared for both her and her daughter, Rayna, now 5—during the first year of her disability, she returned to the office less than five months after losing the proper function of her hands and limbs. “I had to rebuild and start over in my practice, and at the same time relearn to walk and feed myself,” she recalls. She trained younger colleagues in her clinical techniques and took up administrative duties.
