Medical Treatments
Primary Care Sports Health – Athletes have special needs. Primary care sports health physicians specialize in the nonoperative treatment of medical conditions you may face, including:

  • Acute injuries (sprains; knee, shoulder or other joint injuries; fractures; head injuries)
  • Overuse injuries
  • Sports-related concussion or head trauma
  • Management of chronic medical conditions for the athlete

Surgical Treatments
About 90 percent of all sports injuries are treated nonsurgically. But when surgery is needed, our primary care sports physicians collaborate with our orthopaedic surgery specialists to assist with either overuse or traumatic injuries. Our orthopaedic surgeons use minimally invasive techniques such as arthroscopic surgery whenever possible to minimize pain, scarring and recovery time. Our Sports Health surgical treatment options include:

  • Complex shoulder and knee revision surgery
  • Torn ligaments and tendons
  • Broken bones
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Arthritis and other degenerative conditions
