Our Sports Medicine Doctors Care for Patients Just Like You

When a patient first notices pain, it’s common to wait to see if it will go away. However, pain may not improve, and some sports injuries and orthopedic sports medicine conditions should be treated immediately, like an ACL tear. It’s important not to wait too long if you believe you have any type of orthopedic problem.

Our sports medicine specialists provide the high-quality, sports-related treatment a patient needs, including medication, X-rays and MRIs, splints, braces, fracture care, home exercise and prevention programs, physical therapy, surgery, or interventional treatments like steroid injections.

If your doctor recommends a surgical sports medicine procedure, your surgeon, backed by our entire sports medicine treatment team, can expertly perform the surgery using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our surgeons' expertise includes fracture fixation, arthroscopy, articular cartilage repair surgery, robotic-assisted surgery, and joint replacement.

They are healthcare professionals who listen to your concerns, expertly answer your questions, and have dedicated their practices to helping people like you move forward and experience less pain and a better quality of life.
