If your child has a sports-related injury or is looking for ways to avoid common injuries related to their sport, we can help.

At the Division of Sports Medicine, we specialize in the growing athlete, and our goal is to help your child get back to the sport they love quickly and safely.

Our multidisciplinary team includes sports medicine physicians, sports physical therapists, sports orthopaedic physicians and youth-specific athletic trainers. The collaboration among this group of experts provides a one-stop shop for young athletes. 

Our full continuum of care includes injury prevention, screenings and treatment—including surgical and nonsurgical care, therapy and rehabilitation services.

We are focused on enriching the lives of children and adolescents by physical activity and sport. We strive to deliver expert clinical care to young athletes, pioneer research for sports injury prevention and rehabilitation, and build deep relationships within our community to improve physical activity for youth.
