At Lourdes Sports Medicine, we believe everyone is an athlete – whether on the turf, at home or at work. Our physicians have advanced and specialized training in both non-surgical and surgical management of all injuries – whether you're a weekend warrior, a pro athlete, an industrial athlete or someone who lives at the gym or enjoys a walk.
Our primary goal is to get you back to whatever it is you enjoy doing, as fast and safely as possible! We understand how important mobility and independence are. We know, because our entire team are athletes themselves or have been caring for athletes for many years!
The Lourdes Sports Medicine features a state-of-the-art Concussion Center and Running Lab. We are leading the way to bring the emerging field of Regenerative Medicine to the Southern Tier of NY. Regenerative Medicine includes Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) involving a technique that concentrates the few stem cells found in blood as well as other healing factors contained within platelets to promote faster and natural healing without the need for surgery in some cases. We use ultrasound for both diagnostic and therapeutic uses, which means you don’t always need expensive MRI scans or time consuming surgery & recovery. This technology uses sound waves to create images so you can have the peace of mind of not being exposed to any harmful radiation. Plus, it can be done right in our office with no special preparation or appointment.
