Winona Health Sports Medicine physician Andrew Millis, MD, and physical therapist Travis Kramolis, MPT, will share information to help you keep your knees strong and decrease your risk of injury.
“The knees are one of the body’s major joints, and an injury can cause constant pain and prevent you from doing what you want to do,” said Dr. Millis. “Of course not every injury is avoidable, but there are things athletes and active people can do to strengthen and protect their knees.”
Attendees will also learn more about what to do if they sustain an injury including signs that it is something that can be treated at home versus what might require medical attention.
Presenter: Andrew Millis, MD
Dr. Millis earned his Medical Degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio. He completed a fellowship in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at Cleveland Clinic and helped take care of professional sports teams including the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Indians.
“I injured my knee playing football in my early teens,” said Dr. Millis. “The experience I had with my orthopedic surgeon influenced my decision to specialize in orthopedics and sports medicine. One of the reasons I chose Winona Health was for the opportunity to work with athletes and athletic teams at all levels including Winona State University and area high schools. The most rewarding part of my work is helping athletes and others get back to doing what they enjoy doing.”
