For Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service Patients and Families

At Brigham and Women's Sports Medicine & Shoulder Service, patients become a partner on the team developing their personal plan of care. Patients can be confident they will receive the highest quality of care available. Our orthopedic surgeons are faculty members of Harvard Medical School and are on staff at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital.

If patients need rehabilitation, our expert staff of on-site physical therapists emphasize one-on-one patient care and exercise programs designed specially for each patient. Therapists not only take advantage of traditional physical therapy modalities, but also the full range of exercise equipment to enhance rehabilitation and reconditioning.

Should the need arise for related care, we coordinate that care for patients. Our extensive healthcare network includes highly respected healthcare professionals with expertise in orthotics, hand trauma, occupational therapy, total knee, shoulder and hip replacements and many other medical specialties. At Brigham and Women's Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation Center, we provide 24-hour coverage. When our office is closed, one of our doctors will always be "on call" to care for any immediate concerns our referring physicians or patients may have.

Brigham and Women's Sports Medicine & Shoulder Service can provide athletes – recreational or professional – with the level of care expected, from improving function and maintaining health to preventing further injuries.
