SPORTS MEDICINE SPECIALTY
I am an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine. I have worked with athletes of all levels and ages, including high school, collegiate and professional calibers. I was inspired by world-renowned sports surgeon and my mentor, Dr. James Andrews, who showed me the importance of teamwork, compassion and communication when treating athletes.
CELEBRATE THE SEASON!
This is definitely the season to celebrate and channel all the positives to bring with you into the new year! But remember, moderation is key! Health is not only about keeping a balance in your diet and physical activity, but also greatly enriched by mental well-being. Don’t forget to stay hydrated to help combat the dry winter. Your body will thank you from the inside and out!
KEEPING KIDS HEALTHY
A child’s first and most important role model is always their parents. Remember they will likely mimic your habits. I thank my mom for taking me to Gold’s Gym in Redondo Beach as a kid— it instilled in me a foundation of staying physically fit and active.
Overuse injuries have become a significant issue, especially in young athletes. Studies have shown if a child specializes in one sport before adolescence, he or she is actually less likely to become a high-level athlete in that sport. These kids have a higher risk of injuries and also of burning out.
AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
Growing up in the South Bay with a family and a community dedicated to an active lifestyle, I have developed a passion for year-round outdoor sports such as tennis, golf, hiking, swimming and running on The Strand. Weekends at the farmers market to support local and organic growers is always fun. Although I love cooking, I also enjoy socializing with friends at local bars and restaurants. At one of my favorites, The Strand House in Manhattan Beach, Chef Austin Cobb always surprises me with creative, healthy, locally inspired cuisine.
