Orthopaedic Medical Group of Tampa Bay
We strive to make patient care our greatest concern. We have worked hard to create an atmosphere that focuses on the patient’s experience, all the way from the initial evaluation to return-to-play. We take pride in emphasizing that we care for patients first and their orthopaedic pathologies second.
We have hand selected a team of professionals dedicated to athletes with the goal of injury prevention and, when necessary, guided return-to-play care after an injury is sustained. Our team consists of fellowship-trained sports medicine Orthopaedic surgeons, athletic trainers, physical therapists, strength and conditioning experts, speed and agility coaches, and personal trainers who work together to turn injuries into success stories. All of our team members work on and off the field to keep our players healthy and in peak condition. From professional athletes to youth sports, we provide the highest quality medical care and rehabilitation to all of our patients.
Once a diagnosis has been established, treatment begins. Our goal is to keep athletes out of the operating room, but this is not always possible. Non-surgical injuries can many times be treated with physical therapy. Our therapy partners play an extremely important role in progressing athletes back to the field. We maintain constant communication with our therapy partners and adjust protocols to fit each individual patient and each specific injury. When surgery is indicated, our therapists are utilized both pre and postoperatively to progress mobility and strengthening in a controlled fashion.
