SIU Shoulder & Sports Medicine Mission
The SIU Shoulder & Sports Medicine team offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and care of athletes of all ages with injuries or other medical conditions that affect their ability to participate in sports, exercise or maintain an active lifestyle.
A specialty of the division of Orthopaedic Surgery at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, SIU Shoulder & Sports Medicine is the official sports medicine provider for the University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars. As an academic-based sports medicine program that is part of a comprehensive orthopaedics division, SIU Sports Medicine offers numerous advantages for patients.
Cutting Edge Research
Our physicians are actively researching sports-related injuries, studying causes and cures for a wide variety of conditions. Their research has already translated into exciting advances in the clinic through enhanced patient care, and on the field through improved training, performance and injury prevention.
Because it is a part of SIU School of Medicine’s academic medical center, the SIU Shoulder & Sports Medicine team is able to offer fully integrated, multidisciplinary care from top SIU physicians across a broad spectrum of surgical and medical specialties.
