Dr Suhas Y Somayaji (MS PT)
Senior Sports Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologist
Dr Suhas Y Somayaji (PT), started his journey of Physical Therapy by getting inducted into bachelors program of physiotherapy from Kempegowda Institute of physiotherapy, Bangalore. After going through a full rotation during internship he found his clinical interest for musculo-skeletal system and sports medicine. He pursued his career in the Hosmat hospital treating cases like post surgical rehab for ACL, TKR and THR etc for older population and athletes alike seemed enthralling.
After a little more than 2 years of total experience at Hosmat and private collaboration of clinics around his place, was unable to sate the thirst for knowledge. Hence, he pursued on to quest for higher studies. He was lucky to be part of the graduate program called MS Exercise physiology by Human performance and health education department, Western Michigan University, Michigan, USA. During this time learning advanced bio-mechanics and exercise as applied to the human body through various sources ( Classes, seminars, paper presentation, discussions, evidence based practice, ethical practices etc.,). During his masters program he sat for the licensing exam to test for physical therapy(physiotherapy) from state of New York. After obtaining licensure from the same worked in various boroughs of NY city and primarily working in Manhattan for total of 4 years.
After his return to India, Suhas has joined OPTRA Care to bring the expertise from a foreign soil to work hand in hand with home grown talented physiotherapists in our team and to provide world class physical therapy to our patients.
