Sports injuries lead to not only time away from sport but also missed school, missed work, medical expenses and sometimes lasting residual effects.

We’re pleased to introduce Associate Professor of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Dr Timothy Miller and Associate Professor of Family Medicine & Sports Medicine Dr Bryant Walrod.
