Sports Medicine

The sports medicine team at Baylor Frisco can help get athletes back in the game, from ACL reconstruction and meniscus repairs to rotator cuff injuries and routine fracture care.

Sports Medicine at Baylor Frisco

The orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff at Baylor Frisco have experience working with athletes at the high school, college, semi-pro, and professional levels.  Do you run?  Do you jump?  Are you active?  Sports Medicine isn’t just for athletes, but for those who are active and affected by injuries associated with their sport of choice.  Our surgeons can treat most sports injuries here locally, especially those affecting the knees, hips, ankles, and shoulders.

When should I see a sports medicine doctor?

• If you suspect you have a fracture or ligament injury
• If you have an injury that requires crutches or a sling
• If you have pain or dysfunction, especially lasting more than ten days

Athletes and active people ask more of their bodies than the average person. So an injury comes with higher stakes. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can help athletes return to full function as soon as possible. On the other hand, continuing to train through an untreated injury can cause further problems.

Evaluation by an orthopedist experienced in sports medicine can identify injuries that won’t get better with time. For example, is your knee just strained, or is the pain caused by a torn meniscus? Did you sprain your ankle, or do you have a hairline fracture?

After a sports injury, it may take an X-ray, MRI, or other imaging studies to determine if the damage is only a strain or sprain, or if it is something more serious, such as a fracture or torn ligament or meniscus that could lead to future problems if not addressed.

You have come to the right place!  We are a certified Center of Excellence in Hip, Knee, Shoulder, and Spine Surgery, designated by The Joint Commission.
