Sports Medicine

Addressing the challenges of complex pediatric illness, disorders and injuries through innovation and compassionate care of the youth athlete.

A Comprehensive Approach

There is a saying in pediatrics that "Children are not just small adults." This statement is especially true when caring for athletic injuries that occur in the child and adolescent. In growing children, injuries and medical problems in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones and joints often are quite different from conditions more commonly seen in older patients. Our goal is to provide youth athletes with comprehensive care and services for sports-related injuries and conditions that affect athletic participation in a comfortable age appropriate atmosphere.
