About Us

Our Experience

We have extensive experiences after over 20 years of caring for adolescent and young adult athletes. This experience lets us safely and efficiently diagnose and care for competitive and recreational athletes. While treating the whole athlete is our goal we have developed specific knowledge and expertise in:

  • Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) in the knee and elbow 
  • Shoulder and elbow problems in the Overhead Athlete
  • Care and management of joint injuries in skeletally immature athletes including cutting edge techniques in the reconstruction of anterior cruciate (ACL)injuries 
  • Hip pain in young athletes

Our Approach

We work with each individual athlete to construct a specific treatment plan for them.  This is done as a team working with the athlete, coach, athletic trainer, and the physical therapist.  Often non-operative care with the advent of newer biologic techniques can achieve excellent results when combined with therapy and appropriate active-rest.

Why Us?

Our experiences and efforts in addition to those in the office include serving as the team physician with several high schools and colleges in the area.  We are also proud to serve as medical advisors to Major League Lacrosse (MLL) and as the lead team physician for the US Lacrosse Women's U-19 National Team.
