Sports and exercise are great ways to stay healthy, challenge yourself and have fun. So when an injury sidelines you, you want doctors with the expertise to get you back in the game as quickly as possible.

You’ll find that expertise at Rush, home to the team physicians for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, DePaul University Blue Demons, U.S. soccer and rugby, Hubbard Street Dance Company, and many other teams, schools and organizations.

Sports medicine physicians at Rush diagnose and treat athletes of all ages — from weekend warriors to pro athletes — and have the know-how to treat even the most complex injuries. They strive to relieve your pain and restore function, whether you're suffering from a throwing injury, "jumper's knee," a stress fracture, a muscle strain or tear, or another problem.

These highly-skilled specialists have pioneered numerous treatments for sports injuries, including cartilage transplants and arthroscopic surgical approaches for ACL and rotator cuff repair. They also have extensive experience evaluating and treating failed knee and shoulder surgeries, and performing shoulder replacement.
