How We Approach Sports Injuries
Our multi-specialty team includes primary care sports medicine physicians, sports medicine orthopaedic surgeons and specially trained physical and occupational therapists who work together to offer you a tailored plan for returning to the sport or activity you love.
Primary Care Sports Medicine
Our primary care sports medicine doctors diagnose sports injuries, provide nonsurgical treatments, such as joint injections, and consult on ways to prevent injury and improve your performance. They monitor your recovery and coordinate care with other specialists, including imaging, nutrition, rehabilitation therapy and surgery.
Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Surgery
Our sports medicine orthopaedic surgeons offer surgical procedures to address injuries that did not improve after other treatments. They also perform joint injections.
Rehabilitation Therapy for Sports Injuries
Our physical and occupational therapists help you get back in the game by improving your form, strengthening your body or helping the injured tissues heal. They also help you physically prepare for and recover after surgery.
