Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Rathna Nuti.
Dr. Nuti, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
As a child, I was fascinated with the medical field and decided to pursue my interest. Going to school and college, I became involved in the medical field via shadowing and volunteering experiences with different physicians and hospitals in the community. During medical school, various aspects of medicine appealed to me and got lucky to incorporate it in Family Medicine. While in residency, I wanted to specialize but did not know my calling. I was inspired by Dr. Sarah Kennedy to do Sports Medicine and my faculty (Dr. Tasaduq Mir, Dr. Amimi Osayande, Dr. Neelima Kale, & Dr. Zaiba Jetpuri) gave me the encouragement to pursue my passion. However, the main person who I owe my success to is my sports mentor, Dr. Robert Dimeff, who further cultivated my expertise and got me involved with NHL Dallas Stars in the early stage of my career. Growing up I played all sorts of recreational sports but never thought of merging my passions together. Afterward, I specialized in a Sports Medicine fellowship and immersed myself in the field under the guidance of Dr. Thomas Trojian, Dr. Eugene Hong, & Dr. Blake Corcoran. Later, I got the opportunity at TMI Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery and hired on as Assistant Team Physician for the Dallas Stars and Team Physician for Dallas Stars Ice Girls.
Has it been a smooth road?
No road to success is ever smooth. Like my predecessors, I did have a fair share of obstacles. I come from a background where hard work and dedication were taught as the key to success. Being the first in my family to become a doctor, I was fortunate to be supported by loving family & friends. There were times when failures were inevitable, but each one of those experiences always taught me an important lesson. A valuable quote that defines me is: “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the TMI Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery story. Tell us more about the business.
TMI Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery was founded by the well-respected Dr. Keith Meister, Head Team Physician of the Texas Rangers, who built this practice from the ground up. I was hired on as a Sports Medicine specialist who treats non-surgical orthopedic cases such as osteoarthritis and fractures, performs sonographic diagnosis and injections, does regenerative medicine such as PRP and stem cells, and have a specialized interest in active females. I not only treat athletes, but also the individuals who want to maintain an active lifestyle. As a group, we are most proud of the comprehensive orthopedic care delivered to our patients by providing both medical and physical therapy. Our practice is unique in the way the physicians dedicate themselves to providing innovative, compassionate care for patients to endure an active, healthy lifestyle.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Over the next 5-10 years, we look forward to developing our opportunities in different areas of the DFW metroplex. Currently, we are located in Frisco (expanded from our original location in Arlington) and excited to be part of an evolving, thriving sports scene in this community. As Frisco continues to cultivate its sports horizons, we fully intend on being part of the growth. Regardless of the expansion, our emphasis is on striving to maintain our optimal excellence in delivering evidence-based medical care to patients.
