Hashtags are commonly used in social media (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google +) to help people interested in a certain topic quickly find information. We are mothers, fathers, grandparents, business leaders, and athletes. The passion we bring to work, family, sport, and exercise is an identity - and injury is not part of the #Gameplan.

Instantly ask our orthopedic surgeon your sports medicine questions from the convenience of a smart phone, tablet, or computer and joining the community of social media. Think of it as the virtual "house call."

OUR CORE PRINCIPLES ARE…
#Gameplan is both a state of mind and a UNIQUE approach to sports medicine.
We believe that patients should play the most important role in sports medicine. Fundamentally, we are here to help people reach their goals. As such, we expect patients play an important in their orthopedic care. From defining their goals to rehabilitation, we look forward to the patient as partner.
We Treat Patients Not MRIs
MRIs do not have goals. MRIs do not have fears. MRIs don’t do rehab. While we look at images, we never forget the big picture—people are the reason we do what we do. Deciding a treatment plan in sports medicine is much more than just an image. We want people to know that because we never forget.
A Tear May Not Equal Surgery
Sometimes the most difficult decision we make is not to operate on a patient. Often times, people think that any tear in a meniscus or ligament means surgery. The reality is that decision is much more complicated and incorporates patient specifics, goals, expectations, and a host of other factors. In short, we only recommend surgery when we feel the potential benefits exceed the potential risks.
An Integrated Sports Medicine Process
#GAMEPLAN offers patients a different perspective on their sports medicine experience.
Good health outcomes in sports medicine don’t happen by accident, but are the result of a number of important factors. One of those factors is process—the steps that are taken with a patient, irrespective of their injury, that ultimately help them reach their goals. From over 30 years of practice, we take the following steps to generate a #GAMEPLAN:
