Clinical Center at Richardson/Plano – Sports Medicine Clinic
Who We Are
UT Southwestern’s Sports Medicine Clinic at the Clinical Center Richardson/Plano offers a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to the care of athletes, from recognized professionals to elite amateurs, neighborhood joggers, and everyone who seeks a healthy lifestyle through regular physical activity.
Our Sports Medicine doctors are the official team physicians for the National Hockey League’ Dallas Stars, and they continue to serve other professional and amateur organizations throughout North Texas, as well as numerous school-based sports programs.
We work to pinpoint the underlying cause of any injury suffered during training, games, or normal exercise. We can then provide immediate, effective treatment options to manage each patient’s issues.
In addition, as part of the only academic medical center in North Texas, our team has unparalleled access to groundbreaking research that is improving patient care; for example, UT Southwestern Sports Medicine is among only a handful of orthopaedic groups in the country evaluating why women and girls experience different types of injuries more frequently than men and how to treat them effectively.
The Sports Medicine Clinic offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to care. Orthopaedic surgeons, physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, chiropractors, nutritionists, psychologists, and other highly qualified health care specialists are part of our team.
