Sports medicine physiatrist

Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
Bio:   Dr. Roh is a sports medicine physiatrist and specializes in treating sports-related injuries with innovative ultrasound-guided non-surgical procedures. These procedures treat overuse injuries in the shoulder, elbow, and other joints for recreational athletes and professional athletes. The types of procedures Dr. Roh has expertise in include stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy, and ultrasound-guided tenotomy.
