My name’s Dr. Brent Warner with Summit Orthopedics, and I specialize in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. So I grew up as an athlete. I grew up playing soccer, playing basketball, running. I actually chose where I went to college, so that I could run track. I was a pole-vaulter there. And now, I run marathons, I cycle, and so, athletics and being in sports has really been a huge part of my identity in my life. And I think that gives me important perspective when a patient comes in, and they can’t do the things that they want to do, because they’ve had an injury, or they have pain when they do it. I think it lets me relate better to them. And I can understand really what an impact that has on not only those physical things but also from a mental standpoint. It’s hard to deal with that injury and losing that ability. So I think I have good perspective on that from being an athlete myself. I’d like to think too that, in some sense, everybody’s an athlete. Whether you’re training for an ultra marathon or maybe you just want to walk your dog around the block. If that’s an important activity to you, that’s the kind of thing that I want to help people with and get them back to.

Some physicians’ credentials list fellowship training in addition to an orthopedic residency, but what is fellowship training, exactly? Summit Orthopedics sports medicine physician and fellowship-trained surgeon Dr. Brent Warner explains how his fellowship training informs his practice.
Bumps, bruises, and cuts may go hand in hand with healthy active youngsters, but no parents want to see their children injured. If an injury results in a cut, Dr. Warner’s advice can help you determine whether your child needs medical care.
Our shoulder joint provides a wide range of motion, but injury or wear and tear can cause pain that limits mobility. Dr. Warner discusses the most common reasons for shoulder pain, and the treatments available.
