Fearless Athletes Deserve Specialized Treatments

Our Sports Medicine Program is one of the few programs in the country that is dedicated to the care of young athletes. We treat more adolescent and teen athletes than anybody else in Georgia.

Instead of treating a young athlete’s pain, we fix the problem. Many of those problems are unique to children, adolescents and teens, and require specialized treatments.

  • Young athletes’ bones have growth plates and must be treated carefully to prevent long-term damage.
  • During growth spurts, young athletes are susceptible to unique injuries and conditions that our team is trained to handle.
  • The psychology of a young athlete is different. Our team gets to know each athlete, how he thinks, feels and what motivates him.
