John R. Sutton Clinical Lecture

The Return to Play Decision - Beyond the Science

June 3 | 1:00-1:50 PM PDT



Margot Putukian, M.D., FACSM
Princeton University
Princeton, New Jersey

Injury and illness are common in sport and return to play decisions are commonly made by sports medicine physicians using a variety of criteria.  Common considerations are the nature of the injury / illness, and additional factors specific to the athlete and/or sport. 

Understanding the risks related to specific injuries or illnesses is important and therefore a critical interpretation of the science is essential.  However, there are several factors to consider that are beyond the science and that include issues related to the individual, the sport, the athlete’s risk tolerance or their psychological readiness.  Understanding the components of a shared decision making model in the return to play decision is an opportunity to look beyond the science.

Integrative Plenary Lecture

Team-Based Approach to Treating an Injured Athlete: Integrating Basic Science, Clinical Care and Coaching to Successfully Return an Injured Athlete to Competition

June 2 | 8:00-9:15 AM PDT



Kevin R. Vincent, M.D., Ph.D., FACSM
University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida 

The case of a 15yr old High School Runner will be used to demonstrate a team based approach to evaluation, treatment and return to sport participation. The team included: medical staff (Sports Medicine and Endocrinology Physicians, Athletic Trainer, Physician Associate), basic and applied scientists (Biomedical Engineer, Exercise Physiologist), Nutritionist, Clinical Psychologist, and High School Coach. Through coordinated communication and treatment approach, the athlete was successfully treated and returned to sport through addressing the issues, both physical and psychological that contributed to the injuries.
