Orthopedic Sports Medicine: Doctors, Injuries & Conditions

What is Orthopedic Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the prevention and treatment of injuries related to exercise and sports. Our orthopedic sports medicine doctors recognize and appreciate that getting back into action, work, and play is a priority for those who lead active lifestyles.

Common Sports Injuries & Conditions

Seaview Orthopaedics treats a wide range of sports injuries and conditions affecting various parts of the body. Some of the common sports injuries and conditions Seaview Orthopaedics treats include: ACL injuries, concussions, rotator cuff injuries, and more.

ACL injuries are very common in athletes due to the stresses placed on the knees. ACL reconstruction surgery and physical therapy, which is offered on-site at Seaview Orthopaedics, can help athletes recover and get back in the game. Our fellowship-trained and board-certified sports medicine specialists are here to help.

A concussion is a complex brain injury that alters the way your brain functions. It can occur from a blow or collision to the head/body, or when the upper body is shaken violently during activity. ALL injuries should be evaluated by trained professionals and/or medical personnel, and baseline testing should be conducted to establish brain function prior to a concussion. At Seaview Orthopaedics, we have Certified ImPACT Consultants (CICs) through ImPACT (the number one software) used to establish baseline testing for athletes.

Hip arthroscopy is less invasive than open surgery and is often preferred to correct conditions like femoroacetabular impingement, labral tears, dysplasia, and snapping hip syndrome due to quicker recovery times. Dr. Kenneth Chern, a sports medicine specialist at Seaview Orthopaedics, trained under one of the founding fathers of hip arthroscopy and is a local leader in hip arthroscopy procedures.

A meniscus tear is one of the most frequently occurring cartilage injuries of the knee that can be quite painful and debilitating. Although a meniscus tear is especially common in athletes, anyone can experience such an injury.
