"Our medical backgrounds and training are similar to Dr. Cullen's, allowing us to continue providing the quality sports medicine and orthopaedic care patients have come to expect," Dr. Borrow said.

"Together, we have cared for patients of all ages and taken care of many injuries and conditions in athletes and non-athletes alike," added Dr. Fisher.
