Getting Athletes Back On Course 

For our Sports Medicine program, we've created a team of medical experts who are dedicated to providing the best care possible to injured athletes. The goal of our Sports Medicine specialists is to help injured athletes get back into the action - as quickly and safely as possible. We treat a variety of athletic injuries and specialize in golf, soccer, baseball, basketball and hockey injuries that affect the shoulder, elbow and knee.

Whether you participate in recreational athletics or exercise to stay healthy, you can count on the same expert, personalized care that we provide for professional sports teams such as the Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Riverhounds, colleges such as Slippery Rock University and the Community College of Allegheny County, and numerous area high schools.

Medical FrontiersOur fellowship-trained surgeons and primary care specialists are experts in their respective fields. Using the latest non-operative and operative treatments, our doctors help patients regain function so they can quickly return to competition or work. What’s more, our physicians are on the forefront of pioneering research studies that can lead to even more effective treatment options for sports injuries.

We also are committed to reducing the incidence and severity of sports injuries. Our clinical team is actively involved in educating athletes about injury prevention and recognition. By teaching athletes proper strength building, flexibility, conditioning, endurance and training techniques, we believe we can help them minimize the risk of injury occurrence.
