They are dedicated to helping patients of all skill levels reach optimal performance not only in their sport but also in their everyday life.

Our sports medicine team focuses on providing an accurate diagnosis, timely and efficient treatments, and prevention of further injury in the future. Our sports medicine doctors will always exhaust all conservative treatments before suggesting surgery; however, there are some situations in which surgery is the best option to help eliminate pain and restore proper function. If surgery is recommended, our sports medicine surgeons have vast experience in performing many surgical procedures, including rotator cuff repair surgery, ACL reconstruction, reconstructive ankle surgery, hip arthroscopy, Achilles tendon repair, and arthroscopic surgery.
To help facilitate a full and rapid recovery, our sports medicine doctors and surgeons take a team approach when it comes to patient-centered care, and they work in conjunction with our physical therapists and athletic trainers, who offer comprehensive physical therapy services. Our ultimate goal is to provide an effective rehabilitation plan that is focused on your individual needs to help you resume a pain-free lifestyle.
If you're ready to discuss your sports-related problem and the available treatment options with one of our specialty-trained sports medicine doctors or surgeons, visit us in Vancouver at our Vancouver, Salmon Creek, or East Vancouver locations; in Portland at our Rose Quarter location; or at our Lake Oswego location.
