Adventist Health signs surgeon from the Major League Sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon who cared for the MLB's Atlanta Braves joins Adventist Health - Central Valley Network at Hanford Medical Plaza D r. Christopher Verioti, a sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon who cared for Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves, is now caring for patients in the Central Valley. Dr. Verioti is part of Adventist Health Physicians Network in Hanford. He is caring for patients with shoulder, elbow and knee injuries; knee ligament tears and cartilage injuries, among others. He completed his fellowship in July at Atlanta Sports Medicine and Orthopae- dic Center, where he worked with the Atlanta Braves. "I conducted spring training physi- cals and regular season physicals for the draft class of 2015," he says. "I also at- tended home games and cared for the players' injuries before, during and after games." During his residency, Dr. Verioti cared for players from Philadelphia Soul of Professional Arena League Football and the Michigan Warriors in the North American Hockey League. "It's great to see players get back to the game following an injur y," he says. "To see them rejoin their teammates and get back to the game they love are the most rewarding parts of the job." Dr. Verioti played football himself and ran track at Boston College, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in bi- ology. He went on to earn his medical degree from Philadelphia College of Os- teopathic Medicine, where he also com- pleted his residency. Dr. Verioti says Hanford reminds him of the small town where he grew up, Warren, Ohio. "I've been on the road for 15 years, visiting big cities, so it feels good to get back to the roots and small-town feel," he says. Dr. Verioti may be reached at the Hanford Medical Pavilion, 125 Mall Dr., Ste. 205, with an office number of 559- 537-0400. Christopher Verioti, D.O.
