Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus recently announced the expansion of outpatient services to include a new Sports Medicine Program dedicated to treating children for all types of sports-related injuries.
The new program provides comprehensive and convenient sports medicine care to the west Houston community and utilizes an interdisciplinary approach for the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of children and adolescents from the physically active individual to the premier adolescent athlete.
“We are excited to expand our outpatient services to include a dedicated Sports Medicine Program,” says Michelle Riley-Brown, senior vice president of Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. “With this comprehensive program, we are able to bring together highly skilled physicians across a variety of sub-specialties related to sports medicine care to fill a critical niche for the athletes in our community.”
The multidisciplinary Sports Medicine Program team is comprised of primary care sports medicine physicians, pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, pediatric and musculoskeletal radiologists, and sports-focused physical therapists, all of whom have specialized training and emphasis on pediatric and adolescent sports conditions. Patients of the new program also have access to other medical services needed to appropriately care for a sports injury, including pediatric emergency medicine, pediatric cardiology, pediatric neurology, pediatric pulmonary medicine, and pediatric regional anesthesia.
The Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus Sports Medicine Program team includes Dr. Jorge Gomez, primary care sports medicine; Dr. Megan May, sports medicine and pediatric orthopaedic surgery; Dr. Scott McKay, sports medicine and pediatric orthopaedic surgery; and Dr. J. Herman Kan, pediatric musculoskeletal imaging. Visit www.westcampus.texaschildrens.org for more information.
