Our Sports Medicine program provides a full range of sports medicine and athletic services to athletes in the Wood County area. The program deals with the unique needs of athletes of all ages, ranging from middle and high school students, collegiate athletes at Bowling Green State University, to weekend warriors.
We are committed to the belief that the same quality care available to professional athletes should be given to each and every individual. Through an integrated approach with our patients, families and coaches, we strive to deliver on that principle.
