Sports Medicine

Sports medicine physicians specialize in the medical diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Approximately 90 percent of all sports-related injuries are non surgical, and all sports medicine physicians specialize in assessment and management of non-operative musculoskeletal injuries. Common conditions treated by sports medicine physicians include:

  • Acute injuries, such as ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries and fractures
  • Over use injuries, such as tendonitis or stress fractures
  • Athletes with chronic or acute illness, such as infectious mononucleosis, asthma or diabetes
  • Postoperative rehabilitation
  • "Return to play" decisions in the sick or injured athlete

At South Florida Baptist Hospital we offer imaging services, physician counseling, surgical services and rehabilitation services.
