Advocate Sports Medicine

Although I continue to work in elite athlete performance, most of you know I am also the Director of Sports Medicine for Advocate Medical Group. Besides seeing patients from all over the world, it is my job to grow our department by recruiting the best and brightest sports physicians. I could not be more excited to report that we have been able to on-board Dr. Sara Brown and Dr. Kaleigh Suhs.

Annual Summer BBQ

Dr. Brown is a graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, and did both her residency and fellowship training in Chicago. Many in the Chicago running community already know her well, and she was in fact on the board of the Chicago Area Running Association for many years. She cares for weekend warriors and Olympians alike, and will be starting at our Blackhawk and Halstead and Ravenswood locations starting July 17th. You can read more about her here.

Dr. Kaleigh Suhs is a graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, and also did her residency training in Chicago. I had the good fortune of recruiting Dr. Suhs as my sports medicine fellow for the 2016-2017 academic year, and can personally attest to her expertise. As a college (and current!) hockey player, Dr. Suhs has a special interest in the sport. However, she sees all athletes. In fact, Dr. Suhs is spending the first weeks of July 2017  traveling with USA Soccer in China, taking care of the junior squad. She will begin seeing patients at our Irving and Western and Park Ridge (Nesset) locations starting July 30. Dr. Suhs has also accepted an academic appointment as my associate program director for the Lutheran General Hospital Sports Medicine Fellowship Program.

You can make appointments with either Dr. Brown or Dr. Suhs by calling Advocate Sports Medicine at (847)-318-6020.
