Medical Care for the Performing Artist
Washington University Orthopedics uniquely specializes in treating dancers, musicians, actors, artists and singers with quality medical care through the Medical Program for Performing Artists. Many of our physicians have a strong background in the performing arts field, and work with each performer to prescribe an individualized treatment plan. Our goal is for performers to return to performance at full function and reduce their risk for future injury.
