Throughout medical school, I guess sports played a large role in choosing my field, not only medicine but also orthopedics, because at some point I decided that sports was such a large part of who I was, and as I was growing up that it was important to me to 1). Play college sports for that reason, and then 2). Make it part of my career. So orthopedics kind of has a natural fit with sports and injury. So that is kind of what drew me to orthopedics in the first place. I had some encounters with orthopedic surgeons as a kid treating some different overuse injuries and things like that that went well. So I had always kind of had that in the back of my mind, but made that decision in college and then into med school that orthopedics was what I wanted to do. I think sports is my passion and it's kind of allowed me to get through orthopedic residency and then sports medicine fellowship and kind of make that a part of my career as I've gotten to this point.
