Our multidisciplinary approach to treating sports related or sports type injuries where we engage physicians, athletic trainers and physical and occupational therapists, allows us to provide every patient with the absolute best possible treatment plan and result. Many of our physicians in the sports medicine center are fellowship trained in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow and ankle. Our providers are trained to perform the latest surgical techniques which allows the patient to recover faster and get back to the sport, job or activity they were previously participating in sooner.
