A question and answer of sport

Experts in the field of sports injury and medicine will talk about their work and answer questions from the audience.

From sprained hamstrings to broken metatarsals – sporting injuries are often in the news, especially if they occur during a major event. While the effort needed to keep athletes in peak condition through training and nutrition is well known, less is understood about how sport and exercise medicine plays a major role in returning an injured athlete to competition level. In the last of our ‘Anatomy of an Athlete’ events, three experts in this field will talk about their work and answer questions:

Professor Nicola Maffulli is a Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedics and Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon as well as centre lead of the Barts and the London Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine; He has been selected by The London Organising Committee to lead the Orthopaedic Sports Foot and Ankle Surgery Service at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Professor Alison McGregor is a Professor of Musculoskeletal Biodynamics in the Department of Surgery and Cancer of Imperial College London, where she manages the Human Performance Group.
