An orthopedic specialty, sports medicine focuses on the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries. But you don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from the expertise of a sports medicine physician at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near St. Matthews, Kentucky. Whether you are injured while exercising or playing a sport, or you are simply interested in becoming more active, our practice can be an excellent resource.

Each sports medicine specialist on our team is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon. We understand the frustrations of being sidelined with an injury, and our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our patients. Whenever possible, we emphasize conservative treatments such as physical therapy over surgery, and we always encourage our patients to be active and well-informed participants in their care.

Common Sports-Related Injuries

At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we evaluate and treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions and athletic injuries, including:

  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Bursitis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Joint dislocations
  • Knee injuries, including ACL, MCL, and PCL tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Tendinitis

Additionally, we provide athletes of all levels with personalized guidance on nutrition, injury prevention, safe training and conditioning exercises, and return-to-play decisions.

When to See a Sports Medicine Specialist

Both primary care providers and sports medicine specialists can help you manage a mild to moderate sports-related injury with rest, ice applications, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, if imaging is necessary, a specialist visit may be in order. A sports medicine physician will generally have more focused expertise and can help you determine the most appropriate next steps based on the specifics of your diagnosis.

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.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
