Transcription: 
Hi, I'm Tom Grogan. I'm a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in Santa Monica, California. I've been in practice a little over 25 years. In fact, I've seen a little over 37000 new patients. I've been in Southern California now for almost 30 years. My wife, my three kids, we live in Brentwood, California. I'm very interested to be involved in this project and I really hope to provide some useful and reasonable information for everyone. From the hobby perspective, I still love to play golf, I still love to play tennis and in fact, I even snowboard. In fact, last time I was out with my instructor snowboarding, he referred to me as a "Grey on a Tray." Harsh, but real.
