Our physicians share a passion for athletics. We are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of sports related injuries including strains, sprains and soft tissue trauma to the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle. We get athletes of all ages back on the field or in the gym as quickly as possible. Our sports medicine providers specialize in assessing the severity of injuries and determining whether an athlete can continue to play or needs certain restrictions. Our providers recognize that rapid diagnosis and treatment is essential to avoid career-ending injuries, and are able to see most new injuries within 24 hours. If you have an existing injury, we can examine a wide range of treatment options to determine which one is right for you. We take a conservative first approach. Our physical therapists can also help prevent future injuries by working with you on exercises to help you regain your strength and flexibility.
Certain injuries that either won't heal by traditional conservative care or haven't responded to appropriate therapy and bracing may require surgical reconstruction. Our sub-specialty trained surgeons are experts at all aspects of sports related reconstructive procedures with emphasis and specialized training in minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques. Following surgical treatment we rapidly work with our team of Physical Therapists to get you 'back in the game' as quickly and safely as possible.
