I’m proud to offer a fascinating conversation with the author of the new book “THAT’S GOTTA HURT: The Injuries That Changed Sports Forever” (ForeEdge, June 6, 2017). Dr. David Geier delves into the key injuries and incidents that stand out over the last four decades—Bernard King, Hines Ward, Joan Benoit, Marc Buoniconti, Sam Bowie, Eddy Curry, Tommy John, Hank Gathers, Phillip Hughes, Dave Duerson, Sarah Burke, and Korey Stringer and others—and chronicles the rules changes, new diagnoses, new procedures, new therapies, and other innovations that advanced in their wake.

This is the opportunity to discuss all of the key sports medicine innovations, debates and controversies in one exchange: The advent of arthroscopic surgery, sudden cardiac deaths, catastrophic cervical spine injuries, Tommy John surgery, the inherent dangers of extreme sports, exertional heat stroke, the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), return after ACL injury, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
