Whether running a marathon or going grocery shopping, physical activity is important to your quality of life. The Sports & Performance Medicine Department helps patients recover from injury and prevent recurrence.
Dr. Hudson and Dr. Johnson are fellowship trained in Sports & Performance Medicine. They develop non-operative treatment plans that are patient-centered and they work with the rest of the musculoskeletal team to focus on maximizing participation in sports and recreational activities.
Should the patient’s condition warrant a procedure to remedy, referrals are made to an operative sports medicine specialist.
