    What it Takes

    What it Takes

    The scene is set as the NBA and the NHL are ready to conclude their season and crown a champion. All season teams have one common goal in mind, a reward that every athlete dreams of and it fuels their desire to get to the biggest stage to make their dreams come true. The road is filled with daily competition, athletic endurance, pain threshold, mental fortitude, and luck.  Not everyone is fortunate to get to that stage let alone make it to that level of competition. Not everyone has what it takes.

    In this show, Dr. Grant Garcia discusses his experiences working with the top athletes in sports and their unwavering drive when it comes to being the best.  We discuss these successes on the field and off it as well. Rainier Beach high school football coach Corey Sampson joins us to share his thoughts on the various ways to recognize success, especially when it comes to his players. It can be graduating, giving back to your community, becoming a professional in your field of interest, etc. This show is inspired by the movie “American Underdog” and it opened up the discussion of “what it takes.” to achieve success and how that looks different for so many of us.

    136. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Grant Garcia attends the 2022 AAOS annual meetings. VR, 3D printing, ACL preservations & more

    One of the most exciting conferences an Orthopaedic surgeon can attend is the annual AAOS conference. A conference that has more than 30,000 attendees includes Academy Fellows, AAOS members, international guests as well as allied medical professionals and exhibitors. This conference has representatives from 155 countries. These professionals discuss procedures, old and new. They learn about future technology and its usage, but overall, this is a place where great minds come to share and learn.

    In this episode, Dr. Grant Garcia discusses a few things that caught his attention. The future of using virtual reality. Also, the expansion of using 3D printing and how it allows the surgeon to prepare for his patient’s procedures before he does the procedure. There are new advancements and data surrounding ACL procedures such as the Bear Implant and the benefits of preservation versus reconstruction. Who are the best candidates for these procedures? What does the data say about the pros and cons of certain procedures? We discuss topics like this and more. Last, but not least, I attempt to Stump the Doc. As usual, we try to give you the information you the patient is interested in hearing while we try to have a little fun.

    135. Lacrosse and critical injuries to be aware of, and how to treat them

    135. Lacrosse and critical injuries to be aware of, and how to treat them

    Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in America. It is also the oldest team sport in North America. In fact, one of the earliest accounts of lacrosse comes from a document that was written in the early 17th-century, but the sport was clearly around before that time. We also know that the document recognizes the First Nations people first played it across Canada over 500 years ago. Each nation had its own version of “Stickball”, later changed to Lacrosse. “La Crosse” (The Stick), but they all played it to thank the Great Spirit — called Gichi-manidoo in Anishinaabe.

    Dr. Grant Garcia discusses injuries that apply to lacrosse, and some of the signs to look for when they’re not so obvious. As he says…” he rather be safe than sorry.” Especially when it pertains to neck injuries. It’s a show that is beneficial to coaches, parents, and fellow teammates. It’s not just about the injuries, but the love of the sport. These shows are not to discourage playing sports, in fact, there are countless benefits to playing team sports, but we should be aware of some of the injuries and be prepared for them as they occur. Now get out there and play.

    134. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Grant Garcia discusses consumer wearable technology and how it's revolutionizing the medical field.

    134. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Grant Garcia discusses consumer wearable technology and how it's revolutionizing the medical field.

    Consumer wearables such as Apple, Whoop, Polar, Garmin and so many others are revolutionizing how we monitor our health. It’s a Multi-billion-dollar market that has expanded way beyond just counting our steps. On this show Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Grant Garcia discusses the many uses and how its technology will revolutionize health care.

    Athletes are a big part of the conversation because as Dr. Garcia said, consumer wearables are the “Holy grail of athletics” in how this tech will help athletes, trainers, doctors, and the overall organization when it comes down to the players and how they are monitored. Athletes are competing longer, are aware of their sleep patterns, mental and physical stresses, and more.  Teams also monitor hundreds of thousands of algorithms to make decisions that they determine is best for an overall winning outcome. There is an abundance of tech such as pitchers’ sleeves, helmet monitors, heads-up displays goggles for swimmers, and much more.

    This tech doesn’t just benefit athletes, but patients like you and me. As Dr. Garcia said, they can use this technology to “treat patients with a holistic approach.” We cover a lot in this show…Concerns over HIPPA compliance, telemedicine, also, how surgeons themselves are monitored, and how certain places are making sure they are up to an optimum standard before they go into surgery. Places like the Cleveland Clinic have already begun this process. An informative show that we hope like always you enjoy and find informative.

    Dr. Chad Lavender - A New Approach to ACL Reconstructive Surgery - “Lavender Fertilized ACL.”

    Dr. Chad Lavender - A New Approach to ACL Reconstructive Surgery - “Lavender Fertilized ACL.”

    The dreaded three letters that an athlete or a person, in general, doesn’t want to hear from their doctor is ACL. Better yet, torn ACL. It’s an injury that is all too common especially with athletes. An injury that can usually take anywhere from 8 months to a year to recover from. However, Dr. Chad Lavender of Marshall Orthopaedics has developed a new approach, a new technique to ACL surgery that has the orthopedic community buzzing with excitement. 

    It is known as the “Lavender Fertilized ACL.” this technique uses a mixture of bone marrow concentrate, autograft bone, and DBM (demineralized bone matrix) to fill the tunnels within the knee joint during traditional ACL reconstruction. This technique along with utilizing an internal brace reinforcement to improve the stability of the healing ACL patients have reported the same results as the standard ACL reconstruction with shorter recovery times, significantly less pain, and no known additional risks.

    “My hypothesis was if we improved the biologics and healing process into the tunnel, where we put the ACL, patients would have a better long-term outcome. If we also improve the stability of the ACL with an internal brace, patients will have a better short-term outcome and be able to enhance their rehabilitation – which is exactly what we’ve seen.” Chad Lavender, MD

    I had a great time talking with Dr. Lavender as we discussed at length the “Lavender Fertilized ACL.” Technique, but also his love of West Virginia and the University. Dr. Lavender knows first-hand how injuries can really affect athletes and why it’s so important for him to help people get back to normality as soon as possible. It’s not just helping them to get back faster physically, but what it means to get back mentally. He credits his peers and everyone at Marshall Health for their continuous support, and we also discuss a little college football and Mountaineer rivalries.

    132. Georgia vs Alabama, Transfer portal and how it affects scholarships along with rosters decisions, NIL and football playoff expansions

    132. Georgia vs Alabama, Transfer portal and how it affects scholarships along with rosters decisions, NIL and football playoff expansions

    Guests: Scott Laigo, former football coach and current president of Student-Athletes Advocates

    Topics: College football national championship, challenges of roster

    The 2021 college football season has ended and as we recognize Alabama and Georgia as the premier programs in the sport, we also recognize the situation that is happening with the conference committees. Scott and I discuss the championship game between Georgia and Alabama, but also dive into other aspects of college football. We discuss the transfer portal and its trickle-down effect and how it’s affecting recruiting at the high school level. The concerns of recruiting with college programs having to get cut down their roster size after having a 1-year waiver. Meaning there will be student-athletes that may not have many options in the future. Scott Laigo breaks it all down.

    Scott Laigo and Student-Athlete Advocates help high school student-athletes and their parents with a clear, honest approach to the eligibility, recruiting, and financial aid process, through their athletic abilities to help subsidize their college education. Scott is a former University of Washington assistant to legendary coach Don James.
