Sports Medicine

 

​​​​At UW Medicine we provide exceptional sports medicine tailored to your unique needs.​

From skiers to skateboarders, goalies to gardeners, we give people convenient access to expert care, leading-edge techniques and the same patient-centered approach you expect throughout UW Medicine. Members of our staff are the team physicians for the UW Huskies, Seattle Seahawks, various Seattle Public High Schools, the Seattle Marathon, and the Rock N Roll Seattle Marathon. These same providers will work with you—and anyone else involved in your care—to assess and resolve your injuries and health concerns.

​Our sports medicine providers will diagnose and treat your injury with comprehensive, multidisciplinary care. After a complete and thorough evaluation from our sports medicine experts, your treatment plan may include one or more of the following services:

  • Cardiac screening
  • Interventional and diagnostic ultrasound
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Regenerative medicine therapies
  • Sports psychology

The integrated way we manage your care helps you recover more quickly and remain healthy. There’s always an open line of communication between you and your care team — making communication more efficient and treatment more effective.

Treating your injury is just one component of helping you meet your health and fitness goals. We also help people improve their performance and prevent future injury. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing, commonly known as exercise stress testing or CPET, helps sports medicine specialists optimize an athlete’s performance or evaluate symptoms affecting performance. Our injury prevention and performance training services educate you on how to protect yourself so as to remain healthy and perform at your highest level.  Our bike fitting services tailor your bicycle’s fit to your unique movement patterns so as to ensure your safety and comfort.  

So whether you’ve been suffering from a musculoskeletal injury or simply want to keep up with the kids, we can connect you with effective, multidisciplinary care that will help you accomplish your goals. We have the expertise, equipment and technology to maximize your performance and relieve your pain — so that you can return to your favorite activities and avoid injury.

At UW Medicine, we have the privilege of helping remarkable athletes from area professional and collegiate sports teams as well as extraordinary people like you.  No matter what you like to do, we will help you return to the activities that motivate and inspire you.
