What Makes a Truly Comprehensive Sports Medicine Center?
Dr. Bill Moore Smith explains that most sports medicine programs are primarily orthopaedic. In contrast, Erlanger’s new Institute for Sports and Health not only offers world-class orthopaedics, but brings together sports medicine specialties like primary care, cardiology, neurology, athletic training and physical therapy - all in one place. Patients often don’t need surgery, he says. They may require a school physical, a tailored workout program, or to have a hip or knee examined. The Institute's central location and walk-in clinic also make it convenient.
