It was the experience of a lifetime. From the stands and the sidelines of NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas to the stern of a duck boat rolling along the streets of Boston, members of the MGH community were there to celebrate the Patriots historic Super Bowl LI victory.

The Patriots medical team included MGH clinicians, above from left, Peter Asnis, MD, MGH Orthopaedic Surgery; Nick Skordas, MD, Orthopaedic fellow; Paul Cusick, MD, team internist; Mark D. Price, MD, MGH Orthopaedic Surgery, head team physician and medical director; Mike Generazzo, RN, MGH Emergency Department; and David Brown, MD, chief of Emergency Medicine.

“The MGH was well represented on the sidelines at Super Bowl LI," says Price. "The medical staff worked tirelessly this year in all three phases of the medical care of the team; prevention, diagnosis and treatment. It was a wonderful way to end the season with one of the greatest comebacks of all time. Speaking as the medical director, I can honestly say I’ve never been around a more dedicated and hard working group of professionals — and the Patriots are not so bad either!"

Two days after the historic win, MGH patient Catherine Dupuis, 9, of Bolton, Massachusetts received two great surprises – she was ready to be discharged from the hospital and was invited to be part of the Patriots Victory Parade.

“It was super cool to meet some of the players and get their autographs and stand alongside them on the duck boats as they paraded through Boston,” Catherine says. “I think this was the best discharge from the hospital I’ve ever had.”
