Sports Medicine

Photo of runnerVanderbilt Sports Medicine leads the orthopaedic community in cutting edge research both locally and nationally. Our physicians have been published in medical journals and have presented at both state and national level conferences. It is our mission to improve the lives of others through science, education and clinical skill. To be the best, we continously are working on creating better surgical techniques, and rehabilitation through our research.

Vanderbilt’s Sports Medicine Department is fortunate to be the coordinating center for three very large research endeavors that are interested in measuring the short and long-term prognosis of both knee and shoulder injuries using patient-oriented outcome tools.
