Keeping athletes safe and injury-free is a top priority for The Orthopedic Clinic Association (TOCA). That’s why we have proudly served as orthopedic consultants for the Arizona State University (ASU) Sun Devils for the past 50 years! And recently, TOCA’s Dr. Tyler Collins appeared live on the ASU Sun Devil Radio Tailgate Pre-Game Show with Jeff Munn and Jordan Simone to share expert sports medicine tips – to cover both injury and recovery – for athletes of all ages and skill levels.

Dr. Collins routinely treats athletes who are recovering from common sports injuries such as fractures, sprains, ACL tears, hamstring strains, shoulder and knee injuries, and more. He is fellowship-trained in sports medicine and experienced in advanced orthopedic techniques in hip arthroscopy, complex knee ligament and cartilage reconstruction, and all aspects of shoulder and elbow surgery, including total and reverse shoulder replacement.

During the interview, Dr. Collins shares sports medicine tips and stresses the importance of proper training and nutrition for athletes as well as the benefits of being a well-rounded student athlete. Click the video below to listen to the full interview!
