Whether you’re a weekend warrior on the golf course or a professional athlete, everyone wants the ability to maintain an active lifestyle.

Join us Tuesday, Feb. 19, when Cleveland’s University Hospitals Health Systems Dr. James Voos presents “The Masters Athlete: Emerging Sports Medicine Treatments to Maintain an Active Lifestyle.” Dr. Voos’ lecture, the latest in the Medical Center’s 2019 Lecture Series, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Cultural Center Theatre. It is sponsored by Healthnetwork Foundation.

Dr. Voos is chairman of Orthopedics at University Hospitals. A leading expert in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, he has decades of experience with professional sports teams including the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs. He currently oversees the medical needs of the Cleveland Browns.

You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from sports medicine. Sports medicine encompasses a broad array of specialties; it’s a multidisciplinary approach to maintaining an active lifestyle. A physician, orthopedist and physical therapist will collaborate to solve orthopedic or muscular injuries for the best outcome. Strength and conditioning training can help you achieve your goals of enjoying golf, tennis or pickle ball injury-free.

Back injuries are common sports injuries for golfers, followed by shoulder and elbow injuries. Tennis elbow, medically known as lateral epicondylitis; rotator cuff tendinitis and ankle sprains are common tennis injuries.

Cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres will follow Dr. Voos’ lecture, and you will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Voos. For more information about this lecture and the remaining lectures in the 2019 Medical Center Lecture Series, click here.
