The University of Kansas Health System

Dr. Lisa Vopat

As an athlete, I understand what it takes to care for patients eager to return to play, and believe in individualized care and being accessible to my patients throughout their recovery process. While the initial goal is for patients to recover from an injury, success is really achieved if the athlete is given the knowledge and tools to prevent further injury in the future. It is refreshing to be involved in the promotion of healthy living and prevention of injury in individuals driven to recover allowing them to pursue their goals.
