Teaching Vail Ski Patrol

Dr. Terrell Joseph, a surgeon with Vail-Summit Orthopaedics who specializes in hand surgery, upper extremities and sports medicine, recently presented to this year’s freshman ski patrol class at Vail Mountain. Joseph reviewed some of the more common ski and snowboard injuries he sees as a physician to let the patrollers know what to look out for as first-responders to the scene of an accident on the mountain.
