When sports injuries happen, TSAOG’s sports medicine specialists routinely get the call to weigh in on the type of injury, how it is fixed, and what it could mean to the athlete in terms of rehab and recovery. With the Spurs reporting that Tony Parker has suffered a ruptured left quadriceps tendon, everyone wants to know what to expect and we actually had a few of our specialists interviewed yesterday by local media.
Dr. Josh Bell had an in depth discussion with ESPN San Antonio radio and also spoke with the Express-News to give a doctor’s view of the injury.
Dr. Lane Naugher spoke with 1200 WOAI Radio and said that, “This is a very bad injury” and that he expected it would be “at least six months before he is back to any type of basketball activities, maybe even nine months to a year before he would be cleared to play at any kind of elite level, like the NBA.” Read the full interview with Dr. Naugher here.
Please note: Our physicians are speaking only to the general nature of Tony Parker’s reported injury, not to his specific case.
