Sports Medicine

More than sports. More than medicine.

Our Sports Medicine experts in the Greater Baton Rouge and Acadiana regions can help get you or your child back into an active life. Specializing in surgical and non-surgical treatment of muscle and skeletal injuries, we can help maximize function, minimize disability and reduce time away from work, school or sport.

Beyond muscle and skeletal injuries, we treat mild concussions and diseases which may be worsened by activity such as asthma, diabetes or mononucleosis and provide guidance regarding nutrition, supplements, exercise programs, injury prevention, strength training and conditioning.

Conditions Commonly Treated with Sports Medicine

  • Overuse injuries such as rotator cuff, tendonitis, tendinosis and stress fractures
  • Ankle sprains
  • Knee and shoulder injuries
  • Muscle strains
