ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power Podcasts caught up with Dr. Robert Burger a few years ago at the football symposium held at Beacon Orthopedics West in Cincinnati. In this podcast, Dr. Burger talks about his background and what led him to the foreground of orthopedic surgery, with specialty to sports medicine, in the midwest. He also speaks about the more prevalent injuries found in athletics today and the rehabilitation of those injuries.
Dr Burger was a former Notre Dame Fighting Irish football player who worked himself into the starting line-up on a team that had Joe Montana as their starting quarterback. The hard work that Burger embraced, earned him an opportunity for a National Championship with that squad! Years later, Dr. Burger's son Bobby made the Notre Dame team as a tight end. Another son, Chris starred at Xavier University in Cincinnati as a Captain of the golf team. Meanwhile, another son, Joe Burger, starred at Ohio State Football, also playing for a National Chamionship in 2014. Later, the 5 time OSU scholar athlete was elected Captain for the 2016 Buckeyes.
