The World of a Phillies Doctor: Hip, Knee & Shoulder Injuries
Dr. Ciccotti’s day in the training room with the Phillies is very similar to his days seeing his patients at the Rothman Institute in many ways. It begins with a firm handshake and a warm hello. It progresses to a discussion of what is wrong. And then the patient gets on the exam table, and Dr. Ciccotti goes to work.
The exam is tailored to the affected area. The first player has some hip and knee issues. Dr. Ciccotti runs him through a variety of movements flexing, stretching, twisting… then confers with the assembled trainers.
The procession of player-patients continues non-stop. It is thorough, efficient and business-like but with a warm, friendly tone, just like in his offices at the Rothman Institute. And just like at the Rothman Institute, there are a many patients. The exam table doesn’t even have a chance to get warm let alone cold before another young man “steps to the plate.”
