Sports medicine physicians

Our physicians lead a team of more than 400 experts in various facets of orthopedics, sports medicine, rehabilitation, athletic training and sports performance among other specialties.

LVHN is a regional leader in the evaluation, treatment and management of concussion injuries. Our credentialed ImPACT consultants (CIC) have completed specialized training in state-of-the-art concussion evaluation and care.
Our sports rehabilitation focuses on implementing the latest evidence-based research and techniques in order to get an athlete back to their sport. These techniques are not only done in the clinic but carry over to the playing field, ensuring that an athlete is ready to return to play.
LVHN’s sports cardiology program is for athletes 15 years and older who are involved in any level of sports, from recreational to high-level competition. By evaluating an athlete's risk for sudden cardiac arrest, our sports cardiologist can diagnose heart and vascular disease early. A treatment plan then can be created to keep the athlete safe and allow him or her to continue playing sports whenever possible.
