    Anyone know ANY team ANYWHERE, that had a DPM associated with it? Can u really make a practice with a team, like hockey or hoops, since wheels are relied upon soo much in these up & down, wear/tear on the lower extrem's sports? ANY ADVICE would help? I know theres ACPSM , do they do REAL sports med type stuff or not? thanx

    Just as an example, Shaq just had his surgery done by a podiatrist who is Chief of Podiatric Surgery at UCLA. I would guess since the World Champion Lakers would trust a podiatrist with the most dominant basketball player of our time, there would probably be a few other professional sports teams who would as well.

    There are very few podiatrists whoa re team physicians. There is now way to revolve a practice around a team, there is not enough work even if they decided to use a pod, which most do not. Ortho is the king of the sports world.
