HOUSTON – (March 1, 2013)

 

Join Us at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Open House with the Houston Dynamo, on the Methodist Willowbrook Campus - March 7

Meet the Houston Dynamo Players, Cheerleaders and Mascot - Tour the New Human Performance Lab and Enjoy the Food and Fun

The Methodist Willowbrook Hospital hosts an open house event for the Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine with a Houston Dynamo Meet & Greet at its Willowbrook Campus Thursday, March 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The center is located at 13802 Centerfield Drive (just behind the hospital).

The Houston Dynamo, cheerleaders and Mascot, Diesel, will be on hand to kick off the opening of Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, along with the Willowbrook Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) team.    The community is invited to join the teams for refreshments, giveaways, autographs and surprise activities.

The event will begin in the parking lot and include a tour of the center and new state-of-the-art Methodist Human Performance Lab, which helps athletes like the Houston Dynamo create a performance training strategy.

Talk with the senior exercise physiologist, Mark Morrison, and Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) Specialists Scott Rand MD, Gregory Seelhoefer MD, and Christian Schupp MD, who help professional, collegiate and amateur athletes alike reach their performance goals.

The PCSM team will reveal the human performance lab equipment used to perform VO2 max, lactate threshold and metabolic testing - as well as the ways the way they work together with the orthopedic specialists and rehabilitation therapists to help patients overcome injuries.

The team will also talk about the benefits of the human performance lab for the overweight population – and their sports medicine approach to weight loss.

Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is part of Houston Methodist, working together the PCSM specialists work with orthopedic colleagues Plinio Caldera MD, Travis Hanson MD, Korsh Jafarnia MD, Bruce Moseley MD and John Seaberg, MD and the certified athletic trainers and rehabilitation specialists to provide overall health resources in a single facility.
