What We Do
Sports medicine specialists are board-certified physicians who have completed additional training in the treatment and prevention of sports-related injuries. Our team of fellowship-trained sports medicine specialists includes physicians who are board certified in orthopedic surgery or physical medicine and rehabilitation. Treatment plans are individualized, with a multidisciplinary approach that facilitates optimum recovery.
Conditions We Treat
The majority of sports injuries are treated nonsurgically. Our specialists see patients ranging from “weekend warriors” to professional athletes and members of sports teams. Physicians’ areas of expertise include:
- Overuse injuries (stress fractures, tendinitis, rotator cuff injuries)
- Acute injuries (joint sprains, muscle strains, fractures, dislocations)
- Pain in the hips, knees, neck, shoulders, back, feet or ankles
- Complex musculoskeletal problems
- ACL and MCL injuries
- Meniscus tears
- Shin splints
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Hamstring, quadriceps and calf injuries
- Swimmer’s shoulder
- Tennis/golfer’s elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Running injuries
- Ski injuries
- Exercise-induced headache, asthma
Forms of treatment
Nonoperative approaches to sports injuries may include physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablation and joint injections. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons on the Sports Medicine team are also trained to perform a wide variety of procedures, including joint replacements, ACL surgery, rotator cuff repairs and other surgeries involving the shoulders, knees, hips and spine.
Why We Are Different
Our sports medicine specialists are athletes themselves, and understand the impact of sports injuries on quality of life. Physicians have served as team doctors for professional and collegiate sports, and bring an unparalleled level of expertise to their treatment of patients.
