Sports Medicine Center: Ready, set, go
To commemorate its recent move to a new, state-of-the-art space on the
fourth floor of 175 Cambridge St., the MGH Sports Medicine Center hosted
an open house Feb.1 for MGHers, clinicians and guests to view the new
facility. More than 100 people attended the event, which included a ribbon-cutting
ceremony with Peter L. Slavin, MD, president of the MGH; Bertram Zarins,
MD, chief of Sports Medicine; Thomas Gill, MD, medical director of Sports
Medicine; Harry Rubash, MD, chief of Orthopædic Surgery; and Jim
Zachazewski, PT, DPT, clinical director of Sports Medicine.
Visitors had the opportunity to meet the sports medicine physicians and
the expert team of clinicians who work alongside them — including
nurses, physical therapists, primary care physicians, sports medicine
fellows, radiologists and radiology technologists. The new facility features
18,000 square feet of contemporary space and equipment dedicated to the
special requirements of patients with sports injuries.
The MGH Sports Medicine Center provides expert medical evaluation, treatment
and rehabilitation of sports-related and musculoskeletal injuries for
patients who have shoulder, knee, ankle and elbow disorders. The center
staff see athletes of all levels, including amateur, recreational and
professional. For more information about the center, call (617) 726-7500.
