A sports medicine specialist is a physician with significant training in both the prevention and treatment of illness and injury. Like orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists have training in musculoskeletal medicine. However, sports medicine physicians specialize in non-operative treatment of sports injuries. The sports medicine specialist can maximize non-operative treatment, guide appropriate referrals to physical and occupational therapies, and if necessary expedite referral to an orthopedic surgeon.
