Sports Medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries due to athletic activity. Many of these disorders are treated with arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgical method that utilizes a camera to look inside a joint and specialized instruments to carry out any necessary surgery in that joint.
The practice of sports medicine is a team approach with input from orthopaedic surgeon, non-surgical sports specialists, rehabilitation specialist, athletic trainer, and physical therapist. The internationally recognized Sports Medicine Center at the Rothman Institute is one of the world’s most trusted practices for the treatment of sports related injuries.
