Game On, Girl

Learn More about The Uneven Playing Field and the increase in ACL injuries in girls

Women and girls perform in sports and activities very differently from men and boys. As the physician to the Women's U.S. Ski Team for over 20 years, Dr. F. Lincoln Avery understands that physiological reality all too well and is able to provide specialized care for female athletes and active women.

Although sports medicine often involves the care of muscles and joints injured during activity, there are also medical issues that must be taken into consideration that can affect one’s ability to exercise safely and effectively. These include overtraining, the Female Athlete Triad, exercise-induced asthma, diabetes, recurrent stress fractures, exercise during pregnancy, post-partum and through menopause.

"All the surgical options, grafts and recovery scenarios were explained to me. Together, we decided on the option that fit my family lifestyle."
