Step into training centers, rehab clinics, and onto the fields. You'll uncover the up-close life of sports medicine specialists as you set fractures, treat injuries, analyze spine trauma, and operating rooms. Dissect muscles to understand joint and bone anatomy. Repair a knee or shoulder during a computer-simulated arthroscopic surgery in the Dr. Dinesh Patel Arthroscopic Learning Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. Immobilize fractures, spines or extremities on the field - and apply c- spine, traction, and splints. Check for pre- and post-game injuries with an ultrasound. Interview top sports medicine specialists who have worked with professional and collegiate athletes. Operate shoulder-to-shoulder with one of Boston's best surgeons during a virtual surgery. Learn to reduce fractures, to splint, and to suture. Read real X-rays, MRIs, bone and cat scans to diagnose injuries. Mend injuries with real ortho-glass splints and plaster casts. Master the exercises required to strengthen a leg after an ACL tear. Visit a professional rehab center at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, to watch treatment in action.
