myUOIstory: Michael’s pro-rugby dreams saved with help of Dr. Arcand

Michael, an aspiring professional rugby player, turned to his former coach when he was seriously injured on the field during a game.

You see his coach was none other than Dr. Michel Arcand, a sports medicine surgeon at University Orthopedics.

Because University Orthopedics has a division dedicated specifically to sports medicine, Michael was able to be seen quickly and begin treatment – which included surgery and physical therapy. 

Michael recently shared his experience at University Orthopedics and Dr. Arcand explained why gettting treatment quickly can greatly improve the outcome.
