Top sports medicine specialist Pietro Tonino, MD, is available to discuss injuries during the 2016 Summer Olympics, including fractures, knee and shoulder injuries and concussions.

“Although Olympics athletes have been training for months or years and are in top physical condition, some injuries are inevitable,” Dr. Tonino said.

“Whether they can continue competing will depend on the extent of their injuries.”

Dr. Tonino is program director of sports medicine at Loyola University Medical Center. He has treated thousands of injured athletes, including athletes competing at the highest college and professional levels.
