Our Sports Medicine Center Can Help You

At North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center, our Sports Medicine Center is designed to provide athletes and weekend warriors with exceptional orthopedic and sports medicine care. Our center also offers comprehensive education on sports conditions and injuries, medical treatments, and rehabilitation and injury prevention tips.

When you visit one of our specialists at our Sports Medicine Center, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest level of specialized bone, joint, muscle, tendon, and ligament care. Utilizing the latest evidence-based treatments and surgical procedures, our sports medicine specialists are committed to providing each patient, from high school athletes to weekend warriors, with the advanced orthopedic care they need to get back in the game.

To provide an accurate diagnosis of your sports-related injury or condition, our doctors will perform an evaluation as well as order tests, such as X-rays. Once the cause of your medical problem has been determined, our sports medicine specialists will work together to develop an individualized treatment plan that utilizes nonsurgical treatment options first instead of recommending surgery. These treatments may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, splints, orthotics, or an additional medical treatment option. If the conservative treatment options are ineffective at providing relief for your sports condition or injury, our orthopedic surgeons will develop a surgical plan that is right for you.

If surgery is recommended for you, our sports medicine surgeons are some of the most highly skilled surgeons and offer a broad range of surgeries for sports injuries and conditions. This includes the following surgeries and procedures:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Arthroplasty
  • Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
  • Arthroscopic surgery
