DocTalk Tweet Chat "Sports Medicine" Scheduled for September 4

AUGUST 30, 2019

A professional athlete makes a miraculous recovery from a once career-ending injury to again reach the highest stage of competition. A 52-year-old mother receives care for chronic hip pain, and is able to resume her running schedule.

These instances of sports medicine care seem polar opposite in scale, but are both the result of decades’ worth of clinician innovation.

Next week’s #DocTalk Tweet Chat will celebrate the leaps and bounds made in sports medicine—how it’s aided physicians and patients alike—and look toward what’s next in the space.

#DocTalk is a weekly conversation featured on Twitter that focuses on the biggest issues in healthcare today. Join us at 4 PM EST, on Wednesday, September 4 for our chat, featuring the following cohosts from New York University Langone (@NYULangone):
  • Cordelia W. Carter, MD; clinical associate professor of orthopedic surgery and director of Women’s Sports Medicine at NYU Langone Sports Health
  • Dennis A. Cardone, DO; associate professor of orthopedic surgery and pediatrics and co-director of the Concussion Center at NYU Langone Sports Health
  • Thomas J. Graham, MD; clinical professor of orthopedic surgery and associate chief of the Division of Hand Surgery at NYU Langone Sports Health
The team of clinicians and thought-leaders will field perspectives and insights into the following questions:
  • What is the scale of sports medicine in the US today?
  • How have advances and innovations in sports medicine bettered the outlook of everyday patients?
  • What is currently the biggest concern in sports medicine?
  • How has the primary care physician role evolved in respect to the advancement of sports medicine?
  • How has neurological research in the NFL expanded our understanding?
  • What more needs to be done in the sports neurology space?
  • What does the future of sports medicine look like—and what does it mean for athletics?
We invite all interested Twitter users to participate in the chat and contribute their own perspective and questions.
