When sports injuries happen, time is often of the essence. UT Southwestern’s 24-hour Sports Medicine Injury Hotline can help put your patients on the mend by providing immediate access to a member of the UTSW Sports Medicine team for fast answers to questions and expedited appointment scheduling, if needed.
UT Southwestern’s Sports Medicine specialists are the official team physicians for the National Hockey League’s Dallas Stars and serve other professional and amateur organizations throughout North Texas, as well as numerous school-based programs and active individuals of all ages.
