Dr. Heather Bergeson is an accomplished Primary Care Sports & Pediatrics Physician. She is also an athlete and youth sports mom. She has seen the good of youth sports and she has seen the bad. She has treated 1000's of kids for overuse injuries and has had to deal with out of control coaches as a mom. She is doing all this with a long-term, progressively disabling autoimmune disease, Rheumatoid arthritis. This disease causes inflammation, swelling, and pain in and around the joints and other body organs. In this episode Dr. Bergeson tell us how she got into medicine, the effect playing youth sports has had on her, dealing with her disease and how she had to dodge a scalpel thrown at her in the OR during her residency.
