Sports Medicine Program

Comprehensive Care for People with Sports Injuries

Sports activities - whether the solitary jog in the morning, the weekly tennis or golf game or the team match - add immeasurably to our health and enjoyment of life.

Over time, however, repetitive movements, pounding on hard courts or pavement and sudden twists and turns on fragile joints can take their toll.

The wear and tear of athletic activities and injuries doesn't have to end your active life.

At the Sports Medicine Program at the Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedic Center, you don't just have a doctor - you have an expert team. Patients at Cedars-Sinai receive care from orthopedic specialists, pain specialists, physical therapists, physiatrists, diagnostic imaging specialists and surgeons experienced in innovative minimally invasive surgical techniques. Because Cedars-Sinai is a full spectrum medical center, patients have access to all centers and departments at Cedars-Sinai. Whether the need is for pain management, physical therapy or the latest in minimally invasive surgery techniques, the Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedic Center's Sports Medicine Program can provide it.

Focusing on Innovative Minimally Invasive Surgery Techniques

The orthopedic surgeons at the Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedic Center are experienced in using state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgery. For most people this approach means that you're back on your feet, the court or the greens faster. This often means less pain and faster healing. As a result, you typically lose less ground as an athlete during your recovery.

Cedars-Sinai surgeons also have expertise in revising prior surgeries.
