Sports medicine is the specialized care of active individuals. While all of our doctors have experience taking care of professional athletes, the principles of sports medicine treatment serve athletes of all levels. Naturally, sports medicine professionals commonly focus on returning patients to work after occupational injuries.


Mount Nittany Physician Group Orthopedics offers an integrated sports medicine team to care for our patients. Our sports medicine physicians partner with athletic trainers and physical therapy specialists to design specialized rehabilitation plans designed to safely return patients to work and play by using surgical and non-surgical treatment options. We also work with expert radiologists to offer advanced diagnostic imaging, including 3-Telsa MRI, to create an individualized treatment plan for your goals.
