Doctors at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital offer unique approaches to pediatric sports medicine for children and teens of all ages. We care for young athletes at every level, from seasonal athletes to elite competitors.
Our care ranges from pre-participation physicals to advanced treatment of non-surgical sports injuries. We are experts in sports injuries affecting the shoulders, knees, and ankles. These conditions are often more difficult to treat in children than in adults, due to growth and development issues.
Our primary care pediatric sports medicine specialist -- the first in Chicago -- is nationally recognized for her expertise and serves as chair of the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics' committee on sports medicine and fitness. She is also a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine.
