A Q&A with San Francisco 49ers' medical director

If you, like me and countless other NFL fans out there, have Super Bowl fever this week, you may find this Stanford Daily Q&A with Daniel Garza, MD, of interest. Garza is medical director for the San Francisco 49ers, as well as an assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at Stanford, and here he talks about his work with the football team, the scariest injury he's seen on the field, and his experience "soak[ing] up the craziness" in New Orleans, the site of this year's big game.
