Sports Medicine

Hughston physicians have been at the forefront of sports medicine since its inception. The doctors who specialize in this area do thousands of procedures a year in addition to orthopedic research in the field. Sports medicine encompasses a wide range of injuries and conditions, including damage to ligaments, cartilage or the meniscus of the knee. Injuries to the shoulder often involve tears in the tendon or rotator cuff, but also include dislocation, separation or painful conditions such as tennis elbow.
