Orthopedic conditions can include anything from something as seemingly minor as arthritis to something as serious as a fractured hip. Regardless of how seemingly minor the problem might be, all orthopedic conditions can cause major disruptions in one’s life. This is part of the reason why Jason Fond believes that orthopedic surgeons are quality of life specialists whose goal is to help their patients live their lives unaffected by pain or immobility.
Anyone who has been sick or injured knows that the physical discomfort is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how being ill or hurt can make your life miserable. There are few things more frustrating than feeling like life is passing you by while you are lying in bed with a broken bone.
Jason Fond’s career specialty is surgery, but he never tries to push patients into surgery. He realizes that the decision to undergo surgery is a personal one, one that a person needs to make on their own. If, after having listened to his explanation of the procedure and how it relates to their condition, the patient chooses not to undergo surgery, Jason Fond will work with them to help restore their previous quality of life.
No matter what his patient’s particular condition is or what treatment options they decide upon, Jason Fond will do his best to help make sure his patients are able to return to the active lifestyles they knew prior to their condition.
Jason Fond has a lifelong love of sports. In his youth, he was active in a number of athletic programs and he credits the injuries he received while playing as part of the reason he chose to pursue a career in sports medicine.
Jason Fond, like many people, enjoys sports for a variety of reasons. One of the most common benefits to playing sports, especially team sports, is that it helps to foster a sense of community. Every sports fan can relate to the thrill of seeing their team pull off a big win or the disappointment of a close lose.
For those who have played sports before, this sense of community goes even deeper. When you and your teammates manage to pull off a big win it will naturally bring you closer together. Even the shared disappointment of a defeat can help forge bonds between teammates because each player will work harder so that they don’t disappoint their friends in the future.
However, this commitment can become a bit of a problem for injured athletes as they might be tempted to put their health at risk in order to get back to their teammates. Jason Fond’s history in sports helps him relate to this mindset and he uses his experience to help his patients realize that the best way to help their teammates is to help themselves.
When he was younger, Jason Fond was an accomplished athlete who was active on many sports teams. Despite some of the injuries he suffered, he still maintains a love for sports and is grateful that his current career allows him to help others recover from their injuries so they can get back in the game sooner.
