Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Asheesh Gupta and this is my first blog post! I wanted to introduce myself and what I’ll be writing about. I was born in England, raised in Scotland and have been in the United States for 25 years. I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon with a sub-specialty board certification in Orthopedic Sports Medicine. After residency I pursued a one year sports fellowship and then an additional one year comprehensive hip fellowship where I performed hip arthroscopy for labral repair and anterior total hip replacements. My practice is predominantly sports and hips (hence the name hipster!). In this blog i’ll be covering a wide range of topics from general sports training to discussing current sports injuries to athletes making headlines in the news.
If you’re motivated to start or keep up with a fitness routine this winter, that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck inside. There are plenty of activities – such as running, cycling and winter sports – that will give you the benefit of fresh air and sunshine, even if it’s chilly.
So I’ve been asked a lot by anxious patients (and sometimes their parents) about whether it’s ok to play sports with the flu. While I do think there are varying degrees of illness and severity, I did outline some general practices one should keep in mind if attempting to “power thru” the flu.
