Good Saturday Morning , Everybody! Dr. Souryal starts the show with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the team physician as a safety officer. Dr. Craig Garrison from Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Center comes on for a conversation on where we’ve been and where we’re headed with concussions. That’s not punny! The Sports Medicine 101 segment revisits microfracture or “drilling” technique.
The first call is about treatment options for big toe problems, then a young man wants to know more of the physiology of low testosterone. In the second hour, Dr. Souryal gets back to the calls including a concerned brother asking how several concussions may affect an athlete in the future and a truck driver with questions about his exercise-induced compartment syndrome. Then, a weight-lifter has a sore shoulder, a walker who had a septic knee that came out of nowhere has more knee trouble years later, a glute injury in the gym needs a good examination, and finally Dr. Souryal gives all the options for treatment of an arthritic knee after microfracture.
Here’s a question for you- does grunting make a sport unwatchable?
