is a medical devices expert, orthopedic expert, and Spine Specialist with Orthofix.
As a healthcare professional, Benn Willcox deeply appreciates the extent to which we tend to take the dexterity of our youth for granted. As the months become years and then decades, our bodies, like almost all organisms, increasingly succumb to the natural degenerative process of growing old, especially among those that participate in sports. Previously simple actions, like standing or walking, can suddenly become insurmountable challenges. Although not every person will experience the symptoms of spinal deterioration or orthopedic complications like athletes, the individuals who do frequently find that their ability to complete everyday activities is dramatically compromised. This, of course, can create or greatly exacerbate concerns about overall quality of life.
Benn Willcox engages patients and doctors on this dilemma day in and day out, always eager to help.
