Sports Medicine

Many people participate in athletic activities. Some are professional athletes, whose livelihoods depend on their physical abilities. Some are students who participate in athletics while acquiring an education. Others are amateurs who participate in athletics for the exercise and for their enjoyment.

Regardless of their skill level or goals, all injured athletes share the need for a comprehensive sports medicine program and expert physicians trained to diagnose and treat sports medicine injuries. We are devoted to keeping all athletes, regardless of skill or activity level, active and healthy.

Our physicians concentrate on providing accurate diagnosis, and work with the athlete to develop a treatment plan of conservative or surgical treatment, based on the athlete's injury and goals.

See Hand and Upper Extremity or Knee for more information regarding our Sports Medicine services.
