Sports Medicine

At HMG Sports Medicine, we make it our mission to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible!  Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals specifically with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries resulting from athletic or daily activities. It’s not just for competitive athletes! Sports Medicine physicians are ideal for anyone who wishes to become active or begin an exercise program, or for the “weekend warriors” who experience the occasional injury. We focus on physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports, exercise and daily activities.

If you have an orthopedic injury and you want to maximize your function while minimizing the restrictions your injury is causing you, our Sports Medicine Specialists, Dr. Emily Campbell, Dr. Lindsay Remy, and Dr. Brian Shafer and, can work with you to get you back to your best. Dr. Campbell and Dr. Shafer will evaluate you and determine if your injury can be managed with non-surgical methods of treatment.  They will work with our team of physical therapists, athletic trainers and surgeons to develop a care program specific to your individualized needs.

If it is determined that your injury requires surgical treatment, our Sports Medicine Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Lindsay Remy, will provide you with surgical options to help get you back to your best as quickly as possible.  Dr. Remy uses non-invasive surgical methods and post surgery therapies and treatments to help minimize your recovery time.  Dr. Remy has knowledge and experience working with athletes of all ages and ranges of physical fitness.  Her passion for partnering with her patients is what makes her an excellent surgeon and partner in your journey to recovery from injury.

About Concussions:

Dr. Shafer and Dr. Campbell are specifically trained in neuropsychological testing, measuring the brain function for deficits in a clinical setting, for concussion injuries. They provide active treatments and therapies to help aid in recovery of this serious, but treatable injury.  It is important to note that if you think you or a loved one has suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, it’s important that they be evaluated to determine the most appropriate course of treatment and to avoid further injury or damage to the brain.

We encourage parents and coaches to educate their athletes on the severity of concussion injuries so they can inform you of symptoms and be evaluated and treated appropriately.
