No Matter Your Activity Level – We Can Help

Sports injuries often require repairing bones, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, muscles and joints. Our team specializes in arthroscopic surgery and other minimally invasive surgical procedures and rehabilitative strategies. Our aim is to help you return to — and perhaps even surpass — your level of athletic performance prior to your injury.

Norton Sports Health features a team of highly trained sports medicine specialists, including orthopedic surgeons, nonsurgical orthopedic specialists, neurologists, physiatrists and a sports psychologist. These specialists work together with sports nutritionists, athletic trainers, physical therapists, nurses and other care providers to design a customized program just for you.
