"The musculoskeletal system is incredibly complex. When injuries occur, there are myriad treatment options available to patients. In addition to surgery and rehabilitation, I believe in the power of prevention, and educate my patients to help them avoid recurring injuries. When I'm out cycling or playing hockey, I even follow my own advice."
