Our fellowship-trained pediatric sports medicine specialists understand the importance of age-appropriate sports medicine care. At University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s Division of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery in Cleveland, Ohio, we help young athletes with a comprehensive range of services, including:
Our physicians do this with the support of the vast resources of a nationally recognized children’s hospital and an entire team of renowned pediatric orthopedic specialists. As board-certified specialists, fellowship-trained pediatric sports medicine doctors have a higher level of training and expertise. We work together to help young athletes with the same level of skill we use to treat local, national and Olympic-level teams.
We use the newest computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide extremely detailed images of bones, joints and muscles. These images are interpreted by highly skilled orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists and radiologists experienced in working with children.
Our physicians understand that many sports injuries can be effectively treated without surgery; sometimes a period of rest and pain management is all that is needed. Sometimes stretching can help alleviate pain and promote healing.
When surgery is necessary, our specialists and surgeons are highly trained and experienced in the most advanced and least invasive techniques, including arthroscopic and endoscopic surgery. These procedures require much smaller incisions, often resulting in reduced risk and pain, less blood loss and a faster recovery.
The Sports Medicine Center at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital also offers injury prevention programs for young athletes. Our specialists offer neurophysical training as well as conditioning and stretching assistance and education.
As a cohesive team, our physicians, surgeons, therapists, physical trainers and neuropsychologists work with patients, families, coaches, athletic trainers and primary care physicians to provide a complete range of sports medicine services for children and young adults. Services include:
