"Every day is a new challenge and quite a bit of fun whether it is helping a high school athlete get back on the field, helping a 45 year old tennis player get back on the court, or helping a 70 year old with knee arthritis maintain their independence."
Taking care of the young athlete is also a passion of Dr. Stiene. "Youngsters bring quite a bit of energy to the office and I get a great of satisfaction insuring that they and their parents have a clear understanding of what the nature of the injury is, what the treatment options are, and how long it will take to heal and return to athletic and everyday activities."
Dr. Stiene is a member of Beacon Orthopedics, Fellow in the American College of Sports Medicine, and Co-Director of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship which provides specialty training in Sports Medicine for physicians who have recently completed their medical residency.

Dr. Stiene has had his research published in numerous medical journals and has given many lectures and presentations locally and nationally on sports medicine topics.
