Hosts Will Sanchez and Dr. Grant Garcia chat with Lia Winter, co-founder of Winter Innovations, focusing on entrepreneurship and the journey from napkin idea to reality.

We discuss Lia’s creation of EasyWhip, an innovative suture inspired by Lia's mother's initial unsuccessful ACL surgery. EasyWhip allows surgeons to switch between a whip stitch and a locking stitch on the fly. We dive into Lia’s background in biomedical engineering along with the challenges of entrepreneurship, emphasizing the importance of hard work and perseverance (you won't want to miss how Lia caught Dr. Garcia's attention with her incredible story.)

Lia's story serves as an inspiring testament to the impact of innovative thinking in sports medicine, showing aspiring entrepreneurs that bold visions can become transformative realities. We have a little fun with her Tennessee roots through conversations about Peyton Manning, banana pudding, and Dolly Parton. What, how, and why you ask? Well, you’ll just have to listen to this new episode of Sports Doc Talk.

As we approach the holiday season, we extend our warmest wishes to all our listeners. And if you're eager for more insights, and transcripts, or aspire to be a part of the show, head over to Thank you for being a part of our community, and happy listening!
