Services

Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine encompasses a broad range of skills – from serving as a team physician standing on the sidelines, to managing an athlete with a medical condition, to traveling with the athletes during competition, to managing a nagging injury.

Dance Medicine

Dancers are athletes that make activity as strenuous as a football tackle look graceful and effortless. Perfecting the art of dance requires pushing one’s body to abnormal limits while combining strength and flexibility to create aesthetic movement.

Performing Arts Medicine

Musicians, singers, circus artists, Broadway and theater performers are analogous to athletes. All require regular practice. Performances are like competitions or games. Both performers and athletes can suffer from overuse injuries and sudden-onset injuries.
