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 doctors recognize and appreciate that getting back into action, work, and play is a priority for those who lead active lifestyles.

Seaview Sports Medicine physicians provide both conservative and aggressive treatment approaches backed by special interest skills in orthopedic sports surgery, arthroscopic surgery, trauma, joint replacement, and reconstruction, with a focus on knees, shoulders, and elbows. Our patients range from sports-active grade and high school students to college, Olympic and professional athletes, to exercise walkers/joggers, “weekend warriors,” “soccer moms,” and “backyard quarterbacks.”

ACL Injuries

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 professional 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

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.

Meniscus Tear

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.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Rotator cuff injuries are common in athletes whose sports require repetitive arm motions, such as baseball, tennis, and weightlifting. Our fellowship-trained and board-certified sports medicine specialists employ proven protocols to help athletes recover from rotator cuff injuries. We offer both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, and our on-site physical therapy team will work with your sports medicine doctor to help you get back in the game.

Shoulder Instability

In pitchers, chronic shoulder instability can lead to a condition called dead arm syndrome, which can affect pitching velocity. Our fellowship-trained and board-certified sports medicine doctors can help with surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, including on-site physical therapy and shoulder stabilization procedures.
