Sports Medicine

As a specialist in Sports Medicine, I have training including the examination of an athlete, reading x-rays and MRI, physical therapy for sports injuries, sports nutrition and overseeing treatment plans for sports injuries to ensure a rapid and safe return to sport. Common injuires include golfers elbow, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries and spinal injuries. I am board certified in sports medicine and I am the only physician in the Lowcountry advanced to the status of Fellow in the American College of Sports Medicine.

I have always been an avid athlete, not with a ball or bat, rather on the water competitively racing and training for windsurfing. I injured my back in college and was side-lined for quite some time. Doctors one after the other were no help. Then I saw a sports medicine doctor and my recovery started…without surgery! My injury, like 90% of sports related injuries, needed a diagnosis and proper treatment, but did not need surgery. Not only did that physician encounter initiate my recovery, it also inspired me to go to medical school and become a sports physician. After completing residency I completed a 12 month fellowship in sports medicine learning to care for the athlete – both young and old. Whether you are a professional athlete or weekend warrior I will treat you with respect, compassion and the most current treatment options available.
