Kyle Yost with a patient

University of Maryland primary care sports medicine specialists are committed to helping people return to their desired activities and to alleviate pain. Our physicians develop individual treatment plans based on the needs and goals of each patient. We use non-operative approaches whenever possible, and we utilize regenerative medicine techniques and modalities to promote recovery.

If surgery is needed, we can quickly connect patients to board-certified surgeons from University of Maryland Orthopaedics.

Our physicians are specialty trained and certified in both family medicine and sports medicine to ensure the full spectrum of care. We treat patients of all ages for their sports-related injuries, from toddlers to older adults.
