Dr. Daniel Lamar, of Coastal Orthopedics Sports Medicine and Pain Management, has picked up an additional role to his regular duties in Manatee County. Lamar, a former college football player at Davidson (N.C.), is the new lead orthopedic consultant for the Tennessee Titans.
This isn’t the first time Lamar has spent time working with an NFL franchise. He previously was an orthopedic surgeon for 10 years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Lamar also has a history working with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Baltimore Orioles, U.S. Soccer, IMG Academy and Manatee High School.
“From my perspective, there’s nothing quite like football — the variety and complexity of the injuries make it challenging,” said Lamar, a former Manatee football player, in a news release. “I’ve been connected to football my whole life and love the game.”
