SuperBowl: 40 Days of Fitness
Performance Orthopedics was proud to be a part of the 40 Days of Fitness leading up to the SuperBowl. Performance Orthopedics in conjunction with the NFL, William Beaumont Hospitals and numerous supporting businesses of the Detroit metro area provided a variety of free services and information about different health factors. Doctors Jurist, Guettler, and Bak spoke to people about common injuries seen in different populations and then provided a free screening to anyone interested.

On the final day of the 40 Days of Fitness, Performance Orthopedics sponsored a booth where people could receive information about specific sport injury prevention, talk to the doctors about orthopedic issues, have a free injury risk screening, and perform a fitness challenge supervised by Oakland University’s Recreational Department, not to mention having a chance to win free SuperBowl tickets!

Each fall, the doctors of Performance Orthopedics supply voluntary free medical coverage for local high schools. Dr. Bicos provides care to Groves High School at their home football games. Dr. Guettler does the same for Seaholm High School and West Bloomfield High School home football games. Since the demand and need for medical coverage is so great they also assist in medical coverage for Berkley High School and Ferndale High School.

The doctors assist the athletic trainers at their assigned high school with any injury which may occur during the game, and if needed that athlete will follow up with their doctor the next week at the office. Game coverage is an exciting time for the doctors and they enjoy standing on the sidelines cheering for their team and helping to keep the athletes healthy. It is another example of the commitment of the physicians to community service at Performance Orthopedics.

When the NCAA came to the Palace of Auburn Hills for March Madness in 2006, Dr. Guettler was there on the seen as an overseeing physician liaison for all the visiting teams. He was onsite to assist any of the teams with medical concerns or emergency cases. Performance Orthopedics in association with Oakland University’s Athletic Department was proud to provide medical coverage and treatments for the tournaments
first round.
