One of the keys to a healthy lifestyle is remaining physically active, regardless of age. Sports medicine is about caring for active individuals and helping them to return to their chosen sport as soon as is safely possible, whether that sport is played at a recreational or professional level. As a sports medicine physician, I understand the unique needs of the injured athlete and will work closely with other members of our sports medicine team to provide the absolute best treatments. The majority of my patients are children and adolescents, but my practice includes athletes of all ages. My special interests include overuse injuries, concussions, and team sports injuries.
