Serving Your Sports Medicine Needs

The risk of injury while playing sports affects everyone from student athletes to retirees and everyone in between. Whether you find yourself on the golf course or taking long jogs after work, you may need medical services for a common sports injury, such as a torn
ligament or twisted ankle.

Here for You

Offering a variety of orthopedic and physical therapy services, Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman is equipped to handle the needs of accomplished athletes and weekend warriors alike.

Many athletic injuries — as well as those received on the job — can be served through the physical therapy department, where patient needs are assessed and individualized treatment plans are designed to meet patient goals. Physical therapy services at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman address problems of the back, feet, knees, ankles and hands, and orthopedic services include advanced procedures.

Outpatient rehabilitation provides the option of a local facility where patients can receive the help they need to return to the activities of everyday life as quickly as possible.

“In addition to physical therapy, imaging tests can be performed to determine the precise location of an injury and develop the best treatment plan for each patient,” says William R.
Vandiver, M.D., orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman. “Minimally invasive procedures for patients with fractures to aid in the recovery process are also offered.”

If your sports activities lead to an injury instead of a championship trophy, call 1-800-4-Presby (1-800-477-3729) to find a physician on the medical staff at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman.
