I’ve always been active in terms of physical fitness. In high school I played indoor and outdoor soccer, was a cheerleader, and a dancer. My physical fitness journey was put on pause when I became married and had two wonderful children with special needs.
When I was able to return to an active lifestyle, I did so, and I fell in love with a mixed martial arts group fitness class. I just loved it prior to suffering a slip-and-fall injury.
Torn Labrum Diagnosis
I was diagnosed with a torn labrum and was referred to Elite orthopedic hip specialist, Dr. Brian Dierckman, for treatment.
Working with Dr. Dierckman
Dr. Dierckman took a lot of time to really show me on scan why surgery was necessary. He walked through my diagnosis in terms I could understand.
There is a uniqueness to Dr. Dierckman from the standpoint that he was an athlete himself. He’s been in the shoes of a patient. That is huge. The insight you have from being a patient and then becoming a doctor because helping people is your passion – it is so rare.
As a Dr. Direckman patient, you can expect he will be insightful and patient with your personal recovery. In terms of orthopedic doctors, he’s as proactive as it gets.

I recommend this practice and everyone in it to anyone that is suffering from joint pain. If you or your loved ones have an injury or need a surgical consult, Elite Sports Medicine + Orthopedics is definitely the place to go.
