FirstHealth orthopedists are experts in treating a wide range of sports injuries including injuries to the shoulders, knees and other joints. From the dedicated athlete to the weekend warrior, our goal is to help each individual regain an active lifestyle and to compete in sport at the highest level possible.
Many athletic disorders are treated with arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgical method that uses a camera to look inside a joint along with specialized instruments to carry out any necessary surgery in that joint. Other injuries may respond to physical therapy or perhaps require more advanced surgery to promote optimum healing.
Members of the orthopaedic team serve as team physicians for many of the high school athletic teams in the area.
