Our women's sports medicine experts are uniquely prepared to educate and care for active women as they deal with:

  • Stress fractures
  • Hip and knee pain and injuries, including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Shoulder and upper extremity injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sports fitness during and after pregnancy
  • The female athlete triad of disordered eating, amenorrhea (cessation of monthly menstruation) and osteoporosis (weakening of the bones)
