Dr. Whitney on why he chose to become a Sports Medicine physician:

“I love sports! I have played my entire life and continue to be active in playing sports and providing sideline coverage. As an orthopedic surgeon I enjoy impacting a patients’s return to sporting activity, which can dramatically improve their overall health and happiness.  I like getting patients back to doing the things they love.” – Dr. Whitney
