Sports medicine is a field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise.  These physicians generally work with athletes and others with musculoskeletal injuries.

A sports medicine specialist has completed medical school, earned a license, completed an orthopaedic residency and fellowship program that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries that result from sports or exercise-related activity, and have earned board certification in sports medicine.

ONS sports medicine physicians have served as consulting team physicians to many professional teams including the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets. They also support several local high school and college athletic teams. They have authored numerous research papers on a variety of subjects.

Research studies done on athletic conditions and injuries by sports medicine physicians have led to important advances in treatments for orthopedic conditions in people of all ages and backgrounds.
