In sports medicine we see a lot of high school and college kids who have an injury, and for the patient, it’s like the end of the world. What’s going through their mind is, “I’ll never be able to get back on the field.” We see them at their lowest point, we operate on them and go through the rehab process. When that player goes back on the field and back to doing what they love to do, you can’t beat it. This is not a job to me. This is my calling.
