The year 2013-2014 marked the opening of the brand-new Husky Stadium and with it, the UW Medicine Sports Medicine Center.

We also tell you about how the UW is on the cutting edge of utilizing ultrasounds to treat soft-tissue injuries, including the scapholunate ligament. Finally, we’ll learn how one doctor is applying what he knows about treating leg clots to a study on the effects of travel on athletes and their performance.
