Medical Director Services
Dr. Pyron’s Services as Medical Director
The role of a Medical Director is to determine the appropriate safety and medical coverage needed based on the specific sporting event. Dr. Pyron, a Board Certified Sports Medicine Physician, has worked with collegiate level athletic teams as the Team Physician, as well as Medical Director with several major sporting events and tournaments. Years of focused sport medicine experience in the clinic as well as on the field have allowed Dr. Pyron and her staff to efficiently care for all athletes. Dr. Pyron works closely with Race Directors to provide expert level injury prevention and injury care before, during, and after an athletic event or race. At each race or event, the main goal is to prevent injuries from occurring. However, if an injury happens, Dr. Pyron’s safety plan will provide quick medical assessment with the goals of the participant to continue on the course without further injury. On exam, if it is found to be unsafe for the participant to return to the course, optimal medical care will be provided to avoid further injury.
An athlete herself, Dr. Pyron is in a unique position to determine when a participant is no longer fit to continue the race, or when transport for advanced medical care is required. Dr. Pyron analyzes the potential for injury and illness and creates safety protocols specific to each event in accordance with best medical practices.
