Diagnosis and Treatment of Sport Injuries

Our team of physicians, physiotherapists and fitness specialists help women and junior athletes who have acute or chronic overuse injuries modify their training regime, correct biomechanical errors, and use physical therapies and reconditioning to resume sports participation as soon as possible. If surgery is necessary, our sports orthopaedic surgeons apply the most current technology to aid the recovery process.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Medical Problems Affecting Sports and Exercise Performance

Those who exercise regularly sometimes encounter common medical problems that may affect their sports performance, such as exercise induced asthma, concerns relating to being overweight or underweight, or menstrual irregularity, to name a few. Our team works collaboratively with respective medical specialists to provide seamless and sports-focused medical care.
