Dr. Bayomy:
Hi. My name is Ahmad Bayomy. I'm an orthopedic surgeon here at the Shriners Hospital in Springfield, Massachusetts. I focus on pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine. I also direct our Sports Health and Medicine Program.

Dr. Bayomy:
I'm an orthopedic surgeon who focuses on taking care of young people as well as athletes, so I've been trained in pediatric orthopedics as well as orthopedic sports medicine. And I have a focus on taking care of kids, teenagers, and sometimes young adults who have broken bones, sports injuries, sometimes chronic pain from activities such as sports, and related issues, and that's the thing that I'm most passionate about.

Dr. Bayomy:
My story with orthopedics began actually when I was a child because I saw my brother seeking orthopedic care, or my family seeking orthopedic care on his behalf, because he was born with a brittle bone condition. So we spent some time around orthopedic surgeons and the children's hospital in our region. So it's something that was part of our life growing up, and something that I viewed as a family member.

Dr. Bayomy:
When I was in college, I developed an interest in medicine and engineering and then found that orthopedics was kind of a nice combination that married my interests. Fast forward a few years as a resident, and I found that as an orthopedic resident I really loved taking care of kids. I particularly loved the sports medicine aspect of the care that we offered at our children's hospital. And as I continued to sort of mature that interest, I found that it was the perfect fit for me to be able to offer bone and joint care.

Dr. Bayomy:
People here just love doing what they do, and it's infectious in a good way. You sense it when you see families come in who've been patients of Shriners themselves, parents who've been patients of Shriners who now bring their children back.

Dr. Bayomy:
I've been fortunate to be trained by terrific people and to take care of people of all activity levels, of all ages, including professional baseball and professional basketball players all the way down to toddlers who are just learning to sort of stumble around. And I take that care very seriously, and I really want my patients to do the best.

Dr. Bayomy:
No matter how serious the athlete or the issue that we're dealing with, I try to keep a positive attitude and enjoy the time that we spend here with our kids.

Dr. Bayomy:
I'm really a kid at heart, and I love being around kids. I love being in an environment like this where we try to make kids feel happy. Whether it's the frozen cups that I just saw down in clinic or the toy drive that we do or all the outreach that we do in the community, I think it's really wonderful. And even if my wife teases me about wearing animals on my socks, it's just a reflection of who I am.
