Where Your Game Matters

Your ROC Sports Medicine Team is dedicated to the safe, efficient, and common-sense enjoyment of all sports. Whether you’re a weekend recreationalist, a serious student-athlete, or an elite-level competitor, we take your activity as seriously as you do.

As athletes ourselves, we realize that certain injuries can be frustrating interruptions to your training and performance goals, but as experienced medical professionals we also know there are more severe issues that can have a lasting impact not just on your ability to participate in sports, but on your life-long mobility and wellbeing.

We are the most diverse orthopedic rehabilitation team in the region, with a lineup of care providers that includes orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and sports nutritionists. We utilize the most advanced, evidence-based methods to diagnose and address your sport-related problems, and we work closely with you to create an active recovery plan that gets you back in the action stronger than ever.

Sports injuries can occur when engaging in either sports or exercise. The most common include ACL tears, shoulder impingement, meniscus tears, anterior knee pain, and rotator cuff tears. Our Sports Medicine team has the training and expertise to treat a wide range of sports injuries.

Sports Medicine Physicians

"I had my ACL and meniscus fixed by Dr. Uppal at ROC Surgery Center. Everything was first class from preop to postop. I'm 2 weeks out, off crutches and on a bike. Took only 5 pain pills first off. Dr. Uppal is my go to guy for Sports Injuries. Could not recommend more highly. 5 stars."

"Dr. Curtis is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He listened to any questions I might have had and explained the procedure. Professional and friendly staff and front desk. It is nice to have all the services in one building from MRI to pre-op services and physical therapy."

"Dr. McCarthy is the best. She listened to my concerns and came up with a great plan for my shoulder surgery and a post-op recovery plan. She is a professional that has great bedside manner and is very friendly. I highly recommend her."

"Dr. Dobbs and his PA, Suzanne, are the kindest healthcare professionals who have ever treated me. They both explain in an easy way to understand."

"Dr. Kalisvaart and all his staff were exceptional both before and after my hip surgery. Marisa, his medical assistant, is so responsive to all messages sent through MyChart."
