Sports Medicine at Emory

Jul 26, 2008
In the unfortunate event of a sports injury, immediate care is usually required. This can occasionally force a compromise to be made: you must either wait to see a highly acclaimed physician, or sacrifice care in efforts to be seen quickly. At the Emory Sports Medicine Center this compromise has been eliminated. Emory staff delivers world-class care and procedures and can get you back to enjoying your favorite sports faster than ever.

Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are available to treat any sports injury. So whether you have a sprained ankle or a torn ACL, your injury will be treated with care that is unmatched. Listed below are a few of the more common procedures that are offered at the Emory Sports Medicine Center.

The list of non-surgical services is quite extensive. Emory offers diagnosis and treatment for sports-related injuries including the knee, shoulder, foot, ankle, elbow and hand injuries. Radiology services including X-ray, ultrasound, MRI and CT scans are also available. Rehabilitative and therapy programs are conducted in-house. Injection of medications to alleviate pain and promote healing is another non-surgical service offered. Emory will also use orthotics, braces, and splints if deemed a necessary alternative to evasive treatments.

Some of Emory's biggest advancements have been made in the area of knee surgery. Technology and research have allowed surgeons to better reconstruct ACLs and PCLs, and make meniscal and cartilage repairs. More injuries that used to be debilitating are becoming increasingly repairable through Emory's cutting-edge technology and procedures.

Shoulder surgery is another forte of Emory's. These surgeries are performed arthroscopically; a surgeon can now operate using a tiny camera inserted into the skin. This means a shoulder surgery patient no longer needs to worry about scars, instead, only a few very small holes are left in the skin.

The Emory Sports Medicine Center also performs tennis elbow repairs, ulnar collateral ligament repairs, and bicep tendon repairs, all new surgeries that would have been impossible a few years ago. Elbow injuries such as tennis elbow used to be a debilitating injury or even career ending for some athletes but can now easily be treated at Emory.

Through the years, numerous professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and MLB have been successfully treated at the Emory Sports Medicine Center. The reason Emory sees such high profile athletes is mostly due to their reputation for offering world-class care and the most advanced treatments. The Emory Sports Medicine Center is will undoubtedly be the place of choice because of their treatments, their capacity, and their reputation.
