Dr. David Geir holds board certifications in both orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine. He serves as publications chair for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine as well as the Communications Council chair for its board of directors. Previously, he was the director of sports medicine at an academic medical center in Charleston, South Carolina. He now serves as the medical director of sports medicine at East Cooper Regional Medical Center outside Charleston.
He has a new book out, That’s Gotta Hurt: The Injuries That Changed Sports Forever
In That’s Gotta Hurt, the orthopaedist David Geier shows how sports medicine has had a greater impact on the sports we watch and play than any technique or concept in coaching or training. Injuries among professional and college athletes have forced orthopaedic surgeons and other healthcare providers to develop new surgeries, treatments, rehabilitation techniques, and prevention strategies.
He’s a great guest- always informative and topical when it comes to talking about those nagging and serious sports injuries.
