Our orthopedics team sees patients at the St. Claire Medical Pavilion, located off of Flemingsburg Road near the main hospital.

Sports medicine is a subspecialty of orthopedics that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered during athletic activity. Participating in sports places wear-and-tear on the body, and can lead to orthopedic injuries. Athletes are susceptible to injuries that include stress fractures and chronic pain, as well as tearing or stretching of internal structures. Treatment for these conditions can involve surgery, orthotics, physical therapy and rest.
If you are experiencing any type of pain in your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders or back, you should consider seeing an orthopedic provider.
