Sports Medicine Injuries We Treat

Doctors at our Sports Medicine Center are dedicated to treating orthopedic injuries of all types, with a special focus on the knee and shoulder.

Knee Injuries We Treat

Your knee supports up to seven times your body’s weight, so it’s highly vulnerable to injury—whether it’s from a direct hit while playing contact sports, the stress of repeatedly going up and down the stairs, or the effects of osteoarthritis.
