His extensive experience in high school football right here in San Antonio as well as in the London Olympics this past summer makes him a tremendous asset. I am very much looking forward to working with John in developing easier access to specialty orthopaedic care within our Sports Medicine Institute thus allowing the athletes that need it better and more global care from the field and training room to the doctors’ office.”
