In early 2012, Dr. Peter J. Millett, orthopedic shoulder surgeon with The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, had the privilege of surgically repairing a torn biceps tendon for Brian Shaw, the Strongest Man in the World. This small town, extremely nice, massively powerful young man, recently shared his story withThe New Yorker magazine. The article discusses Brian’s youth and how he made his start in weight lifting, and offers insight as it details his career highlights, injuries, and later in the article, his time spent with Dr. Millett.
Dr. Millett and his team continue to follow Brian as he completely recovers from his injury and works to win the top honor in the September 2012 World’s Strongest Man Competition.
