In addition to being an avid sports fan, I treat injuries among famous athletes. I am an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist in Charleston, South Carolina. I operate and treat injuries in athletes from the professional levels to recreational athletes. Getting athletes back in the game is my full-time job.
A few years ago, I started a sports medicine blog, www.drdavidgeier.com. Over the last few years, I have been writing about injuries in sports, surgeries of famous athletes, and other topics related to health and wellness. I now write a regular sports medicine column for Charleston's daily newspaper, The Post and Courier, and I contribute content for many other publications and websites.
I also host a weekly sports medicine podcast, The Dr. David Geier Show. Each week, I discuss hot topics in sports medicine and injuries among college and professional athletes as well as answer sports injury questions from listeners around the world.
I currently serve as the Public Relations chairman for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. All ideas and opinions in any content I write or discuss on my show are my own and do not reflect those of my institution or organizations with whom I work.
I have read Bleacher Report with tremendous enthusiasm for a long time, so I thought that I would join and contribute my experience and knowledge when I can. I am currently writing a book, so my time is somewhat limited, but I will likely contribute articles here when I can. I would love to help and work with Bleacher Report members, so if you have questions about injuries of any athletes or other medical topics, please feel free to ask.
