"We have a treadmill with a slow motion camera that helps doctors analyze our patients' running form and determine if there are injuries we can help prevent," said Dr. Steve Hamilton, a Fort Thomas resident and orthopaedic surgeon at Beacon. "We watch you run and help determine if you're stride is off or where you are stepping that's causing the injury."
Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine physicians specialize in general orthopaedic surgery, total joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, spine medicine and surgery and sports medicine. Beacon treats athletes and non-athletes of all ages, including children. And they have six convenient locations in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Hamilton, is also a fellowship trainer for the youth mentoring program. (READ here where Fort Thomas Matters did a story on the Highlands A.P. Anatomy and Physiology trip to Beacon's lab in March). "Inspiring young people to learn and preparing them for their first step in the long road of a medical career is important," said Hamilton. "Beacon is all about community involvement and the fellowship and sports management program is a big part of that."
