Sports medicine specialists employ a multi-disciplinary approach to treating sports injuries and offer non-surgical and surgical treatment as well as minimally invasive procedures to treat a wide range of sports-related medical conditions. Our physicians work closely with physical therapists, athletic trainers, physiatrists and rehabilitation medicine specialists, as well as primary care sports medicine providers, human performance experts and sports nutritionists to coordinate care and optimize an athlete’s recovery.
The team treats more than 3,500 new patients a year, with the total number of outpatient visits exceeding 10,000 annually. The most common surgical procedures performed include knee arthroscopy, meniscectomies, ACL reconstruction, shoulder arthroscopy, acromioplasties, rotator cuff repair, shoulder stabilizations and meniscal repairs. Other procedures include cultured chondrocyte transplantation, osteochondral plug transplantation, and complex and revision ligament reconstruction. Arthroscopy of all major joints, including the knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle when appropriate, can aid in an athlete’s rapid recovery and return to mobility.
Rehabilitation, which includes range of motion and strengthening exercises, begins in either an inpatient or outpatient setting. All rehabilitation is tailored to the type of injury and sport to which a patient will return.
