Saint Louis University

The goal of sports medicine is to keep people active. For some that means continuing to play basketball or hockey, for others it means climbing up stairs or lifting objects to shoulder-level.

Specializing in both traumatic athletic injuries and in chronic problems caused by overuse, our team is made up of fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians from the SLUCare departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Family Medicine. We treat both adult patients and kids.

Please call (314) 977-4440 to schedule an appointment with a SLUCare sports medicine doctor.

Caring for Athletes

On the athletic side, our experts treat athletes in any sport and at all ages and skill levels. As our patient, you have access to the same specialists who treat the Saint Louis University Billikens, local NCAA playoff games, Missouri Valley Conference basketball tournaments, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, six area high schools and more.

Procedures Performed

When you see a SLUCare Sports Medicine doctor, you'll be getting high-quality treatment, from state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging to minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and comprehensive rehabilitation services. See a list of the procedures performed by SLUCare Sports Medicine.
