If you’ve been injured playing your favorite sport, have chronic aches and pains because of your activities, or have general health issues common to athletes and active individuals, our team of Sports Medicine specialists is there for you.
Our Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service is a team of 20 physicians dedicated to treating athletic injuries of the musculoskeletal system, with a special focus on shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, foot, and ankle injuries. Our sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons are fellowship trained in sports medicine. They are joined by highly skilled physical therapists and athletic trainers with special training in sports medicine and the latest tools and techniques to speed your recovery.
The Service is committed to providing a broad continuum of care to the athlete over the course of his or her career. It is our responsibility to see a patient through the consultation, surgical, and rehabilitation process, while being mindful of the athlete’s current and future performance needs. To that end, the Service also offers physical therapy, performance, sports psychology, and nutrition services.
With our unique and unrivaled sports medicine focus, our primary care physicians and surgeons work seamlessly together to provide you with the full spectrum of the latest medical and surgical care for your sports and work injuries.
Our Services include:
• Advanced arthroscopic “minimally-invasive” techniques

We stress immediate or same-day access and early intervention to provide accurate diagnosis and proper treatment in a timely manner. These elements are essential to returning you to optimal pre-injury condition. Our Sports Medicine physicians also employ advanced techniques to aid healing, including injections using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, phototherapy, and stem cell tissue regeneration.
When surgery is required, we utilize the most cutting-edge technologies and procedures. With more than 3,000 surgeries performed annually, our physicians are some of the best trained and experienced surgeons in the country. Surgical interventions include cartilage repair/restoration.
