Sports Medicine

Sports medicine experts utilize the latest diagnostic equipment and technologies to help get you back in top form.


Whether you’re an athlete or just living a full life, quick movement, body mechanics, overuse, poor posture or taking a misstep can do an "end-run" on your joints, tendons and ligaments—and sometimes your brain—by sustaining a concussion.

Comprehensive orthopedic care is our game plan for athletes, the active and those with sports-like injuries.

  • Improve your movement and increase your athleticism at the Sports Performance Center at the Baylor Scott & White Sports & Therapy Research at the Star in Frisco or at the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center in Waco.
  • The new Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Center in Waco offers one specialized location solution to many sports-related healthcare needs.
  • If you are experiencing pain or have aggravated a previous injury, speak to your doctor and find a rehabilitation location convenient for you.
  • Learn more about our sports concussion treatment program.
  • Orthopedic sports medicine surgeons on the medical staff are skilled at treating and repairing all types of injuries resulting from participating in sports or even injuries that result from everyday life.
