Orthopedic Sports Medicine
The orthopedic surgeons at University of Maryland Medicine treat patients of all ages for a variety of sports-related orthopedic injuries, including problems with muscle, tendon, ligament and bone in the arms and the legs. Their areas of specialties include knees, shoulders and ligament repair and reconstruction.
The surgeons work closely with the therapists of University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute, a national leader in orthopedics and rehabilitation, to develop appropriate regimens that help athletes and others restore the injured parts of the body to good working order. When surgery is required, our surgeons prefer minimally-invasive procedures to lessen time away from activity.

The philosophy of the rehabilitation program at University of Maryland Orthopaedics is to get athletes back to their sport as quickly as possible.
