TSAOG is pleased to announce that our own Dr. Christian Balldin is the new team physician for Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) Athletics. This new relationship means that Dr. Balldin will be in direct contact with OLLU Athletic Trainer Christine Ramirez, on call to treat OLLU student athletes, and holding weekly meetings with the OLLU Athletic Department to evaluate any injuries. You may also see him on the sidelines at home games.
According to Dr. Balldin, “I am very excited about the opportunity to work with OLLU Athletics. Christine Ramirez, the only Athletic Trainer at the University, is very busy and needs to have quick, direct access for her athletes to be seen by an orthopaedic sports medicine surgeon. The relationship between TSAOG’s Sports Medicine Institute and OLLU Athletics is something that will allow that to happen. I look forward to working closely with Christine and OLLU Athletics in order to make sure their athletes get the access to care and professional service they deserve.”
Dr. Christian Balldin is an orthopaedic surgeon, fellowship trained in sports medicine, with The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group. He treats patients aged 3 years and up for all orthopaedic conditions with the exception of the spine. To learn more about Dr. Balldin, visit his web page here.
