I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon, fellowship trained in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. I treat athletes from pros to high school to weekend warriors to more "experienced" individuals to regular folks. I was a collegiate athlete, and can personally relate to the challenge of time off for musculoskeletal injury. Please look for me on Facebook and Twitter (@ShybutMD).
