Is sports medicine right for me?
You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from what a sports physician can provide. If you’re seeking to become more active or begin an exercise program, a sports physician can help, promoting lifelong fitness and wellness, and encouraging the prevention of illness and injury.
Drs. Jack Skendzel and Angela Voight discuss some of the ways that sports medicine can benefit people from all walks of life, not just elite athletes in the featured video below.
Dr. Amy Beacom lead me to exactly what I needed to end a lot of pain and suffering for me by her recommendations. I improved greatly in my physical health issue. I highly recommend Dr. Amy Beacom. Hands down the best doctor I have ever had. Top notch in her field of expertise. Good table side manner. I have recommended her very highly to others including other health care providers.
Dr. Boetttcher really listened to my concerns and was helpful in providing information so that I can heal more quickly and play the sports I really love. He is so friendly, too!
Dr. Breien and his team were very helpful and made my daughter's experience better.
Dr. Daly and his entire team were super informative, ensured they kept my daughter informed at every stage, and made sure she felt comfortable. I am very thankful to the entire staff and will highly recommend this A-team and facility.
Dr. Furmanek did the surgery on my left knee 3 years ago and I was so pleased that I requested him again this time!
I have had a number of sports injuries and surgeries by other doctors. Dr. Gannon is simply the best hands down.
Prior to my injury I had never been to Summit Orthopedics for care. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Khetia and his team care for me. He's helping me to get back to my active lifestyle - pain free!
I felt Dr. Lehnert was very concerned not only about my health but about the way I wanted to proceed. I also thought she was very kind and feel confident and safe in her care.
I can't tell you enough about how well my experience with your clinic went. I had heard horror stories about time off from Rotator Cuff surgery. Almost 3 months to from the date of surgery - I was back volunteering at the food shelf, mowing, and playing golf.
Dr. Pepin was very attentive to our questions. He provided us useful information in a manner easily digestible. It felt like he genuinely cared about the outcome of my surgery and progressing back to full health.
Dr. Perra takes the time to explain what's going on with my joints and often grabs a replica of a knee or shoulder to show whats going on in detail. He always listens to my questions and answers them using terminology that I'd understand. Dr. Perra is a great all around doctor that I'd recommend to others.
Dr. Scofield is a fantastic doctor!!! Right there with Dr. Donohue and Dr. Holm. You have fantastic doctors and believe me, I've had my share of sports injuries. I always tell people to go to Summit.
Dr. Skendzel performed my labral hip repair surgery following a running injury this past winter. What I loved about him and his staff was that they were all 100% focused on getting me back to doing what I loved - being active and running. In fact, at the end of my 4-5 month recovery, Dr Skendzel and his staff eagerly supported my desire to run the Twin Cities 10 Mile race (which I decided not to d...
I'd recommend Angela Voight for any sports related injury as she is super knowledgeable on how the body works.
