Orthopedic surgeon & sports medicine specialist, Dr. David Geier, is just as passionate about injury prevention as he is about treating injuries. Dr. Geier writes a regular newspaper column, produce a weekly sports medicine podcast (The Dr. David Geier Show), and writes for his own blog and other numerous publications. All of this while he maintains his own busy practice in Charleston, South Carolina. His practice is particularly focused on knee and shoulder injuries and the arthroscopic surgeries used to treat them.
