"My focus in clinic in addition to minimizing the suffering associated with sport injuries is to help my patients realize their hopes and dreams. Im here to help them articulate what they hope to achieve and to support them in making it happen. It is a privilege to work with patients, families and our fantastic, multidisciplinary team to get the kids back on the field and help them stay on the field. All of them are athletes in some way."
