Sports Medicine at Greater Rochester Orthopaedics focuses on meeting the diagnostic and treatment needs of both serious and recreational athletes. We understand the role activity plays in keeping our patients fit and are dedicated to helping them get back to their activity.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to understanding the goals and motivation "driving" individuals in their sports or performance activities. At GRO, we consider this essential in determining how quickly and what type of intervention is implemented, how performance and recuperation should be monitored and what comprehensive rehabilitation plan is needed. Our goal is the safe restoration of function as well as minimizing or preventing de-conditioning of unaffected anatomy or structures by neglect or inactivity.
