“After twenty-five years traveling around the globe, I wanted to find a home where athletes and teams could come to me and I could grow a story around a program” states Clive. “OthoArizona provides the perfect place to do that; a collection of leading surgeons, physical therapists & a performance program means we can provide the complete spectrum of comprehensive care and expertise to people who may otherwise not be excited to work in that environment.”
