Because today is Mother’s Day, I wanted to highlight a woman and a mom on this weeks podcast. Episode 2 features the distinguished Dr. Robin West, a mom, a wife, a friend, and an overall badass in her profession! Who says you cannot have it all, not her! Listen to her story about how she was rasied by a single mom and proved all the doubters wrong about being able to rise up in the field of orthopedics and sports medicine, a field dominated by men.
Dr. Robin West is a board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine surgeon. She joined Inova Medical Group in 2014 and has more than 20 years of clinical experience. As Chairman of Inova Sports Medicine, Dr. West directs the clinical, strategic, administrative and academic affairs of the comprehensive program.
Dr. West currently serves as the Lead Team Physician for the Washington Nationals and was up until recently the team physician for the Washington Football team.
In this week’s episode we highlight female athletes sports injuries especially the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament of the knee) which is a key static stabilizer of the knee joint and how to prevent them and much much more.
Whether you choose to listen in your car, at home while sitting in your favorite chair, your office or on the run, I hope you enjoy the podcast!
