Primary Care Sports Medicine Service

Our Non-surgical Approach to Sports Medicine

“Most injuries do not require surgery.”

The goal of the Primary Care Sports Medicine service is to help patients decrease their pain and improve function, so that they can safely get back to their activities. The physicians will assist the patients in determining the best treatment plan, and can refer the patients if surgery is indicated..

We take a comprehensive approach to our patients, focusing not only on the injury itself but also on the factors that may contribute to their recovery process. These factors are all considered when a treatment plan is formed.
