The Team That Takes Care of the Team

The Ochsner Sports Medicine team includes nationally and internationally recognized orthopedic surgeons, fellowship trained in sports medicine; a sports medicine physician with expertise in orthobiologics; on-site nurses; more than 80 highly qualified athletic trainers; performance training coaches; and sports medicine assistants and navigators who work to facilitate the practice. Ochsner’s occupational and physical therapists as well as nutritionists are part of our team.

What’s more, as part of the largest health system in the region, we’re able to collaborate with the most experienced specialists and sub-specialists available. Together, our sports medicine team works not just to prevent misdiagnosis of sports injuries and not just to get you back on your feet, but to get you in the best condition of your life.
