Erlanger Sports and Health Institute
The region’s only multi-specialty sports medicine program
As much as by scenic mountains and rivers, our region is defined by sports. We don’t just watch the competition; we are ironmen and amateurs of all ages with an urge to pedal, run, swing, swim, kick, and shoot. The good news is that our region is also home to a comprehensive resource when injury or illness takes us out of the action. Staffed by physicians who serve the region’s top teams and who teach the latest sports medicine techniques, the Sports and Health Institute offers more to get you moving again. Our goal is to help you return to the active life or sport you enjoy as quickly as possible – with a focus on life-long fitness.
