At UOA, you will receive the most comprehensive treatment for all sports related injuries and conditions.

Patients benefit from a team approach with the UOA sports medicine department. From on-site diagnostics, treatment, physical therapy and rehabilitation to sports performance management, we ensure you are back on the field healthy, and when possible, at pre-performance status or better.

Your care begins with UOA’s award-winning certified sports medicine physicians. The Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine is for board certified orthopaedic surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in sports medicine beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in sports medicine, and contributions to this field. Our sports medicine physicians are proud to treat Rutgers University, Princeton University, Rider University, USRowing team and various local high schools.

Our qualified physicians offer a complete variety of non-surgical solutions, and when surgery is called for, they specialize in cutting-edge minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures.

Our practice views the athlete’s whole career. We call it our Continuum of Care.
