Sports Medicine

We are the official healthcare provider for the Nashville Predators, the Nashville SoundsVanderbilt athletics and the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association.

We care for athletes at games and year-round. Our licensed, certified athletic trainers work nearly every sports event at 27 high schools in Middle Tennessee to care for the region's youth athletes.

If you are injured, we'll bring the same expertise to helping you strengthen and heal that we provide to professional and collegiate athletes. Our team includes doctors, surgeons, nurses, athletic trainers and physical and occupational therapists who will get you back to your best as quickly and safely as possible.

Vanderbilt Sports Medicine specializes in knee and shoulder injuries, but we also care for ankles, hips, hands, necks and backs.

Our doctors have trained many of the physicians practicing elsewhere in the country. Specialists at other orthopaedic practices cite the latest research supporting their treatments. We are often the experts who conducted that research and developed the best orthopaedic practices for the rest of the field to follow.
