If you are a student-athlete in the Roanoke area, New River Valley, and Lexington or the parent of one, chances are you are already familiar with Carilion Clinic's Sports Medicine program. We are the ones on the sidelines, ready to treat a sprain, or test for a concussion, as soon as an injury occurs. By bringing top sports medicine expertise directly onto the playing fields, like our Certified Athletic Trainers, we are able to quickly care for active athletes and ease the minds of anxious parents during our Saturday Sports Clinics.
Carilion is committed to staying current with the latest research and updates, and use only the most advanced surgical techniques. Whether you've injured your knee, dislocated your shoulder, or are concerned about a sports-related head injury, you will be given the highest level of compassionate, expert care.
