Sports Medicine

People with active lifestyles are often at risk for sports-related injuries. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained sports medicine specialists can properly diagnose athletic injuries and provide treatments that restore your motion and get you back to your sport in even better shape than before.

In addition to caring for patients in the office, Drs. Browdy and Young care for athletes at several local high schools and Webster University. Dr. Browdy is also the team orthopedic surgeon for the St. Louis Cardinals. The most common sports injuries we see and treat involve the shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips.

Shoulder

As the most movable joint in the body, the shoulder is also one of the most potentially unstable joints. As a result, it is the site of many common problems.

The shoulder joint is made up of bones held in place by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Many shoulder problems are caused by the breakdown of soft tissues in the shoulder region. When it comes to treating this complex joint, our shoulder surgeons are “head and shoulders” above the rest.

Conditions

Treatments

Elbow

Elbow injuries are most commonly associated with sports activities such as tennis, golf, and baseball. The elbow is an exceptionally complex joint, made up of the humerus (upper arm bone), the ulna (larger of the lower arm bones), and the radius (the smaller bone in the lower arm), along with a delicate intersection of muscles, tendons, and ligament. Our elbow surgeons have vast experience diagnosing and treating all kinds of elbow injuries.

Conditions

Treatments

Knee

The knees provide stable support for the body. Your knee joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and fluid, while muscles and tendons help the knee move.

Knee problems can interfere with your daily life in many ways, from participating in sports to simply getting up from a chair and walking. Knee pain, especially from severe arthritis, can negatively impact your quality of your life. You can count on our skilled knee surgeons to help restore your mobility and active lifestyle.

Conditions

Treatments

Hip

Your hip joint is designed to withstand repeated motion and wear and tear. Overuse, aging, sports injuries, falls, and infection can result in pain and lack of mobility. It is important to realize when hip pain begins to prevent chronic pain or further damage from occurring. Our hip surgeons are experts at treating both degenerative conditions and sports-related hip injuries.
