Youth Athlete Program

Specialized Care for Growing Athletes

Northside Hospital Sports Medicine’s Youth Athlete Program provides treatment tailored to growing athletes. Our sports medicine team includes operative and non-operative orthopedic doctor’s, physical therapists, and certified athletic trainers working for you. Our focus is to treat and prevent injuries and our team of experts use the latest, evidence-based techniques to recover faster, and safely return your athlete to sport.
