EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region Offers Sports Medicine Expertise

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), upwards of 8.6 million sports and recreation-related injuries take place every year. Such a high figure only highlights how important it is for patients to access an orthopedic practice with comprehensive, expert sports medicine services. At EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region Sports Medicine, many of our physicians and surgeons are fellowship-trained, which indicates a high level of expertise.

When sports medicine doctors complete a fellowship, it means they have undergone a rigorous program that provides state-of-the-art clinical and operative experiences. During their sports medicine fellowship, doctors are exposed to outpatient and in-patient opportunities; advanced surgical approaches; research experiences, and more. By the time they have completed a fellowship, these doctors are experts in their field.

The extensive education, training, and specialty skills of our EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region sports medicine team, allows us to offer patients a wide range of services. Sports medicine encompasses any activity-limiting conditions, which could be caused by injury, disease, or the process of aging.
