The most high-tech sports equipment isn’t the Sky Caddie golf GPS unit or a customized performance boosting tennis racket—it’s the human body. And when active bodies are injured or traumatized in some way, the physicians at Minnesota Orthopedic Sports Medicine Institute (MOSMI) at Twin Cities Orthopedics are committed to getting those bodies back in motion.
The MOSMI physicians do this through offering a full spectrum of orthopaedic care to individuals suffering from sports-related problems and injuries, a spectrum that includes developing and implementing state-of-the-art techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic injuries in patients of all ages throughout the entire healing process.
Patient care—whether it’s for a pain, strain or sprain—is driven by education and research. The physicians at MOSMI are at the forefront of sports medicine education and provide excellent learning opportunities in a first-class teaching, research, and clinical environment. The highly skilled group serves as faculty for an advanced-training orthopedic sports medicine fellowship program and performs high-level clinical and surgical research, resulting in cutting-edge treatment options. MOSMI physicians partner with physical therapists, certified athletic trainers, fitness professionals and other health care providers to help restore athletes and nonathletes alike to active, pain-free lifestyles.
The doctors also serve as team physicians for the Minnesota Gophers football and wrestling, Augsburg College, the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Soccer Teams, Hamline University, the University of St. Catherine’s, the Life Time Fitness Triathlon, WCHA playoffs, Minnesota Dance Medicine, and a number of local high schools—a testament to their talent and success.
