Sports Injuries are complicated, often involving the shoulder or the knee. When athletes get hurt, often the most important concern is how fast they can get back on their game. Dr. Sisco is specifically trained to treat these extreme cases. And he brings the same expertise to injuries that don’t happen on sports fields.
Not everyone gets hurt sacking a quarterback or running a marathon. Sports-type injuries can happen any time people are moving – raking leaves, changing a tire or carrying a toddler. Often these are knee or shoulder injuries. Sports medicine surgeons treat both athletes and non-athletes, using expert skills to return their patients back to full function as quickly as possible.
