Florida Just moved to Titusville, need new doctors.

Recommended Posts

MY wife and I just moved to Titusville a couple weeks ago from West Yellowstone Montana. Back in March I crashed at the National Hare & Hound in Idaho and messed myself up, broken foot, blown out knee, and broke my back in two places. Now that we are settled in I am looking for new doctors. After the last neurologist I went to it became clear to me that I need to go to someone who understands the lifestyle of dirt bikers. So what better place to try to find a good dirt bike friendly neurologist, and orthopedic specialist then a dirt bike forum? Any suggestions would be great, I need to get back to as close to 100% as I can before the season down here is too far along.

I am not sure how far you want to travel, but in Jacksonville (about 2 hours north of you), Dr. Steve Augustine is an orthopedic surgeon who himself is an avid dirt biker, races FTR Hare Scrambles, and was the founder of ASMF, the Action Sports Medical Foundation that covers events including dirt bikes, skating, surfing, etc. He is an excellent physician, and has operated on Supercross/Motocross riders. If you are well into the rehab/recovery phase of your injury, there shouldn't be too many trips up there. He might even know other people who would understand the mentality of a dirt biker closer to you.

Thats exactly what I was looking for, thank you. Assuming my insurance will cover it, I will make an apt this week. Gotta do everything possible to get back riding ASAP, so I miss as little of the coming season as possible.
