Dr. Alan Beyer, Host of the Doctor in the Dugout Radio Show, to Appear Regularly on Laguna Woods’ Channel 6 “This Week” Program to Discuss Sports Injuries and Orthopedic Issues

Many residents of Laguna Woods are the perfect example of “healthy aging” – whether it’s participating in competitive sports, working out at the gym, or a simply going for a walk every day. Today’s older adults are much more active than their parents ever were, and the unfortunate side effects of a more active and healthy lifestyles can be sports-related injuries and living in pain. To address this common issue in active, older adults, Dr. Alan Beyer, medical director of the Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, and host of the popular Saturday afternoon AM830 KLAA Angel’s radio show Doctor in the Dugout will be appearing regularly on Channel 6’s This Day.

DrBeyer2Dr. Beyer, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and total knee replacement, discusses the causes of various sports injuries, joint and bone issues affecting the older adult, and prevention, among other topics. His Channel 6 segments will include interviews with leading Orange County physicians and surgeons who will share their insights to empower patients to make better health care decisions.

“Education is a crucial ingredient in preventing injuries for older adults,” Dr. Beyer says. “We see older adults in our medical offices every day and they are often dealing with many of the same joint and bone issues as younger athletes. We want to help Laguna Woods residents prevent injuries and remain active. I know how much it means for many to play golf or tennis regularly and to do it without pain or suffering. We aim to help them with good, sound education on the show.”

A longtime resident of Orange County, Dr. Beyer began hosting his radio show four years ago. Each Saturday, he drives to Angel’s Stadium to the broadcast booth of KLAA AM 830, the flagship station for Angel’s baseball games, for his live, one-hour show at noon. The show is the only sports medicine radio show based in Orange County and has generated a loyal listening audience. Each week he chats with sports stars from the NFL, PGA, NBA and MLB and shares insights into what is new and trending in the treatment of orthopedic injuries.

“We get calls and emails at the radio show from many residents of Laguna Woods asking good questions about various orthopedic injuries tied to golf, tennis or other activities,” Dr. Beyer said. “So we thought it would be a good idea to bring our radio show concept to Channel 6 so we could spend more time talking about health issues that can help residents remain active, healthy and happy. For older adults, the social and mental health benefits of being active are so overwhelmingly positive that I think it’s important to ensure they can continue doing what makes them feel like themselves.”

Humorous, talkative and enthusiastic about educating others about injury prevention, Dr. Beyer is the perfect guest host for Channel 6’s This Week, especially considering his own personal experiences. “I’m an active person who also had a hip replacement a few years ago,” he shared. “I know what it is like on both sides of the surgical table and exam room. I also know what it was like to live and try to be active when you are in constant pain. Empathy is a great teacher and I like to share my own experiences with my audience.”
