Dr. Alex Romero is an award-winning orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician that has served our country through multiple tours in Afghanistan. Dr. Romero knows first-hand what it means to need waterproof, sterilizable medical devices in adverse conditions, and for active lifestyles at home and abroad.
He has cared for athletes in programs including the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA (MLS), the US Soccer Mens National Team, Pepperdine University, Santa Monica City College, the Chicago Sky (WNBA) and the University of Illinois at Chicago Flames. He also was a member of the medical staff for professional cycling’s Tour of California. He currently serves as team physician for the Colorado State University-Pueblo football program.
Not only is he a provider, he’s also been a patient himself!
“I first became aware of ActivArmor a few years ago when I sustained a wrist injury that required surgery. As a surgeon myself, I knew recovery from this injury could sideline me for up to 12 weeks in a cast. It was important to be able to minimize recovery time and maximize the use of my hand. Because of the versatility of my ActivArmor cast I was able to do both — it was waterproof and sterilizable and I was able to return to work about 5 weeks sooner than expected!”
“A few weeks after surgery I was on vacation with my family and able to enjoy being in the ocean without concerns. I’ve also been able to use this cast when my young son broke his arm as well as when my mother recently broke her ankle.”
“These innovative casts allow anyone to be cleaner, more comfortable and active while recovering from serious injury. I highly recommend and prescribe regularly for my patients!!!“
Even injured, he’s able to provide the best surgical care to his patients, with a little help from a sterilized ActivArmor cast.
