Duke Medicine: Sports injuries and kids

Posted September 27, 2011

Dr. Andre Grant of Duke Orthopaedics sat down with me to talk about sports injuries and kids.

Grant is an orthopaedic surgeon who focuses on providing the latest, most advanced surgical procedures in sports medicine. He brings a unique perspective to his practice. Grant was an NFL-scouted wide receiver who served as an assistant team physician for the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Nationals, among other teams, during his sports medicine fellowship.

We spoke about some of the common injuries kids experience while participating in sports and how to prevent them. A good coach, who can show kids the correct way to play the game, is key, he tells me.
