Sports Injury Clinic

Friday nights in North Texas are all about high school football! And our physicians are devoted fans! That’s why they want to make sure you/your child’s injury is seen quickly and treated professionally!

For the duration of the Fall sports season, our Friday Night/Saturday Morning Sports Injury Clinics will be open for ALL athletes who have non-emergency injuries that require medical attention.

We will be seeing patients beginning Friday 8/27-11/6

There is no need to make an appointment. Just come in and be seen by one of our Orthopaedic Surgeons.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INJURY CLINIC

*Who: Student athletes with acute injuries. How: Parent, coach, or athletic trainer MUST come with an athlete. If a minor, parental attendance is strongly encouraged. Parental consent will be required for all minors accompanied by someone other than a parent/legal guardian (i.e. athletic trainer, coach, sibling, etc.)

Cost: Complimentary for the initial evaluation only (includes X-rays). However, we ask athletes to bring insurance cards and/or school claim forms in case further studies other than X-rays (i.e. MRI, CT scans) or durable medical equipment (i.e. braces, crutches) are needed.

Rehab: Rehabilitation will be provided by the school’s athletic trainer when available and when applicable. When athletic trainers are not available, physical therapy may be completed at local facilities.

Referrals: Referrals to other specialists will be suggested when appropriate. For certain insurance policies (HMO), a referral from your primary care physician might be required to follow up in our office for subsequent appointments.
