Sports-Related Conditions We Treat

Treatments for Sports Injuries

When you’re down with a sports injury, you want the most accurate diagnosis and most effective treatment to get you back on your game. We work with you on a plan that’s centered around your condition and goals. We’ll help you reach them using the latest technology, the most advanced procedures and compassionate care.

Nonsurgical Treatment Options

We’re dedicated to using the least invasive approach possible to help your injury heal. We consider nonsurgical options first, including:

  • Activity modification
  • Anti-inflammatory medicine (over-the-counter and prescription)
  • Icing
  • Interventional pain management (injections and nerve blocks)
  • Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and steroid injections
  • Physical therapy and occupational therapy
  • Immobilization (bracing and casting)

Minimally Invasive Arthroscopic Surgery

If your sports-related injury needs surgery, you can count on experienced surgeons with specialized expertise in sports medicine. We know the most advanced techniques in arthroscopic procedures that are minimally invasive. That means you have no overnight hospital stay, less pain, quicker recovery, less scarring and fewer complications. Our surgeons can make repairs using pencil-thin instruments inserted through tiny incisions.

We can use arthroscopy to help repair sports-related injuries to your:

  • Ankle and foot
  • Hip
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Knee
  • Wrist
