You’ve got game. So do we.

Sports Medicine

Injuries can happen to even the toughest athletes. Our team is dedicated to getting young athletes back on their feet and back in the game. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained Sports Medicine specialists treat all sports-related injuries or conditions in both youth and adults.

Athletic Training

The primary goal of every trainer and physician at our center is to provide care that ensures athletes are able to return to the highest level of competition in a safe manner. When it comes to caring for patients, our team focuses heavily on injury prevention and management.

Human Performance Center

The CHRISTUS Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute is taking physical function and performance to the next level with its state-of-the-art Human Performance Center (HPC), offering athlete training programs, extended recovery/rehabilitation treatment beyond primary rehab services, and a groundbreaking pre-surgical fitness intervention program too accelerate recovery.

Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Programs for athletes of all levels help minimize the risk of injury and optimize performance. Certified athletic trainers and our Saturday Morning Sports Injury Clinic in the fall are available to area high school and college athletes to help facilitate their return to play.
