World-Class Sports Medicine From an Esteemed Orthopedic Physician. Many sports injuries don’t require extensive treatment, but some warrant the expertise of a uniquely trained orthopedic physician like Dr. Richardson. If you are an athlete who has sustained an injury or is struggling to manage the effects of a chronic condition like arthritis, Dr. Richardson and our team are here to help.

Dr. Richardson specializes in the treatment of many sports injuries, particularly conditions that impact the shoulder and knee – two of the most complex joints in the body.

“The knee is the most commonly injured joint in the body. One reason for this is its large size and near-constant use, especially among athletes,” says Dr. Richardson. “For this reason, it’s important to take a proactive approach to treatment and promptly seek care if you develop pain.”

From conservative therapies and minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to traditional surgery, Dr. Richardson leverages advanced methods to help his patients get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible.

Using evidence-based techniques, Dr. Richardson helps athletes of all levels prevent and bounce back from injury. He also caters to patients with overuse injuries from everyday activities and arthritis.

Common Injuries Treated by Dr. Richardson

Many sports injuries affect the shoulder and knee joints. Dr. Richardson commonly treats ACL tears, rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder injuries, joint sprains, bursitis, tendinitis, meniscus injuries, and various other conditions.

Procedures Performed by Dr. Richardson

Dr. Richardson excels in arthroscopic surgery, which uses a very thin surgical instrument with a camera on the end and other special tools to address many sports injuries without the need for large incisions, as well as total and reverse total shoulder replacement.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.
