Omer Mei-Dan, MD, School of Medicine assistant professor of orthopedics and an extreme sports enthusiast, is now featured in Cutting Edge MD. This new program, with Mei-Dan and many other CU School of Medicine faculty members, premieres on the Fox Sports network this week.

Each week the show will highlight a common sports injury, include interviews with well-known athletes who have had those injuries and feature surgeries at the University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado. For most viewers in the Denver area, the show appears on Root TV at 7 p.m. Mondays beginning March 10. Check your local listings for the channel, which will vary depending on your cable or satellite provider.

Mei-Dan’s recent publications have focused on climbing and BASE jumping injuries as well as observing the mental characteristics and hormonal changes exhibited by extreme sports athletes.
