It also makes it easier for researchers who are studying sports performance and new therapies to better interact with the doctors who are bringing the new treatment options to their patients, as well as the students, residents, and fellows, who are learning about the latest advances in sports medicine at Duke.
“This is more than just a new location,” explained Benjamin Alman, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon and Chair of Duke’s Department of Orthopaedics. “It’s a new way for us to put patients first. Now doctors and scientists can work together on the development of innovative new treatment approaches. This facility distinguishes Duke as a premiere destination for sports medicine services.”
