"As a former athlete, I understand the mental and physical impact of injury and missing competition. My goal as a physician is to keep kids in the game! We try to minimize time missed, but will never do it in an unsafe manner. The Seattle Childrens Sports team has unique expertise with multiple physicians having been former Division I college athletes and having competed at very high levels. We understand the drive of our patients and the pressure they get from coaches, parents, and themselves. We want to treat the current injury, prevent future injury, and return kids to play as all around better athletes!"
