Sports Medicine

<p>Sports Medicine</p>

Comprehensive care and treatment for children, teens and young adults with acute and chronic injuries.

Because a young athlete's bones, muscles, brain and other organs are different than an adult, they respond much differently to injuries, stress and athletic training, and require comprehensive, specialized treatment. The Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Program at Texas Children's Hospital utilizes an interdisciplinary approach for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of young athletes with acute and chronic sports injuries. Our board-certified sports medicine doctors work collaboratively pediatric and musculoskeletal fellowship-trained radiologists, sports-focused physical therapists and dietitians, as well as with other Texas Children's Hospital sub-specialists when needed.

Our program also places a large emphasis on wellness and injury prevention, with special understanding of the unique needs of school-age athletes and young women. Our comprehensive program offers services including physical therapy, musculoskeletal radiology, nutrition, orthopedic surgery and young women's services in a state-of-the-art, patient-centered environment.
