University Hospitals Sports Medicine is revolutionizing the way sports medicine care is delivered. Led by James Voos, MD, Director and Head Team Physician for the Cleveland Browns, the multifaceted sports medicine program offers comprehensive specialty and subspecialty care throughout the UH system. All of our sports medicine services care available at multiple outpatient primary care clinics and physical therapy centers.
Starting with a proactive approach to injury prevention, UH Sports Medicine provides skilled expertise and knowledgeable resources. When sports-related injuries occur, our team brings this specially trained proficiency throughout the entire diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation process.
The sports medicine program at UH prides itself on providing patients of all ages with quality care, delivered by specialists and subspecialists who are fellowship-trained in sports medicine. The primary care sports medicine doctors provide care for muscle-related issues, concussions and other health problems linked to sports injuries. Because diet and sleep can affect both performance and overall, nutritionists and sleep experts who are trained in sports medicine are also available for patients at UH Sports Medicine.
The multidisciplinary approach, along with the expertise of leading-edge sports medicine specialists, ensures that each patient receives the most appropriate and responsive treatment. Experts at UH Sports Medicine include:

Surgeons at UH Sports Medicine use a minimally invasive approach to treatment wherever possible. Many surgical techniques today are less invasive, and include the use of biologic implants instead of larger metal implants. The minimally invasive approach to procedures results in less pain, less bleeding and shorter recovery time, allowing athletes to get back in the game faster.
The most important thing we do at UH Sports Medicine is make accurate diagnoses. Getting a reliable medical diagnosis sets the timeline for the patient’s recovery, whether they just need physical therapy and rest, or if surgery and additional therapy are required. Recovery time may range from a few weeks for an ankle sprain, or up to several months for more serious injuries such as an ACL tear.
UH Sports Medicine has physicians who specialize in diagnostics and treatment of sports-related injuries, whatever the patient’s age. The UH sports medicine program has a pediatric component that treats children as young as toddlers; we also see active seniors who compete in triathlons or bike well into their 90s.
Sports medicine physicians at UH are integrating specialty programs such as concussion management into the more comprehensive program. This allows us to navigate through the entire UH system to find top specialists to see our patients. Learn more about our concussion management program.
Improving outcomes with advanced sports medicine techniques is achieved through our team’s ongoing research focus. The ultimate goal of our research program is to advance clinical care through research excellence, investigation, cooperation and education. Experts at UH Sports Medicine lead many innovative studies, including:
Education is a significant part of what sports medicine doctors engage in at University Hospitals. Medical students, residents and fellows shadow the doctors and surgeons as they prepare to become the next leaders in sports medicine. In fact, all of the sports medicine orthopaedic physicians are fellowship-trained in sports medicine, with added qualification certificates in the sub-subspecialty of care of athletes.
