Youth Sports Medicine Program

Pediatric Sports Medicine Care for Young Athletes

Young, growing athletes require special attention to recover from sports injuries. That's why the Youth Sports Medicine Program delivers age-appropriate, individualized treatment plans. 

We help young athletes get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible. The same experts that care for your young athlete also treat professional and college teams.

Our Approach to Youth Sports Medicine

Our sports medicine physicians look for the root cause of every sports injury. We then develop personalized treatments for long-term results. 

Our team includes surgeons, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and coaches in the community. As a leading academic sports medicine program, we produce innovative research. This helps create national recommendations for young athletes and guides treatment strategies. Our expertise with all ages allows us to care for your young athlete into adulthood.
