Division of Sports Medicine

The Division of Sports Medicine provides personalized comprehensive medical care to the athletic community. The University Sports Medicine Center goes beyond the treatment of the injured athlete by addressing all the medical needs of the athlete. We offer a close working relationship with our sports medicine staff, physical therapists, and orthopaedic surgeons. We offer complete care to the athlete: from the pre-participation physical exam, to state of the art arthroscopic surgery, to the rehabilitation of injuries.

The Division of Sports Medicine is dedicated to keeping the athlete optimally performing in his/her sport by working closely with teams, coaches and parents. We specialize in the care of athletes of all ages and performance levels, from the weekend warrior to the high school scholarship hopeful. We specialize in the treatment of shoulder problems and knee injuries as well as foot & ankle complaints. We provide prompt care with early convenient appointments. Our physicians are available 24 hours for consultations and provide medical staff coverage for athletic events. The Chief of the Division of Sports Medicine is William Urban, MD.
