Question: What are your favorite summertime activities that help you de-stress?

Brian R. Gantwerker, MD. Founder of the Craniospinal Center of Los Angeles: In the summertime, we take our son to one of the small local water parks and unwind. Going for a late afternoon bike ride along the boardwalk and grabbing dinner at one of the beachside cafes. I also make my way back to Chicago and catch a game at Wrigley Field.

Richard Kube, MD. Founder and CEO of Prairie Spine & Pain Institute (Peoria, Ill.): With the kids out of school, family time is a big one. We spend time outdoors, typically swimming and [playing] soccer in our family. The grill and smoker are also heavily used. Generally, we take a laid-back approach and make sure to just be together.

Vladimir Sinkov, MD. Spine Surgeon at New Hampshire Orthopaedic Center (Nashua): Summertime is usually not the most stressful season anyway, but I do enjoy spending time with the family, hiking, grilling, gardening and traveling.
