Sports Medicine Physicians

A Sports Medicine Physician is most often a primary care doctor or orthopaedic surgeon who has completed additional training and certification in the subspecialty of Sports Medicine.

  • The training can require up to an additional 2 years to complete
  • The Sports Medicine Physician is knowledgeable about conservative rehabilitation and surgical intervention needed to return patients back to an active and healthy lifestyle.
  • The specialized training covers topics such as treating sports-related and orthopaedic injuries, fitness and wellness, concussions, sports physicals, and return-to-play clearance procedures. 
  • Our providers see patients from all levels of activity, promoting healthy practices from professional sports-related injuries to the novice athlete just starting a new exercise program.

We consistently strive to learn and pass on the latest in medical advancements to provide our patients with the most up-to-date options for their care. Among those services and specialties, our Sports Medicine Physicians have training in:

  • Fracture management
  • Electromyogram (EMG) procedures
  • Ultrasound-guided procedures, including cortisone injections, visco-supplementation for arthritis,
  • Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) injections for chronic tendon injuries. 

Many of our physicians are athletes themselves, and are deeply committed to contributing to our local athletic community. Throughout the year, our providers offer on-site medical coverage for local athletic groups and programs, from amateur level events to professional sports teams.
