Because children and teens are still growing and developing, they experience different types of sports-related injuries than adults. The Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, Pediatric Sports Medicine Program is dedicated to preventing and treating sports injuries in the growing athlete, or young sports enthusiast.

Our interdisciplinary orthopedic sports medicine specialists at three Nicklaus Children's locations work together to provide the most advanced care in orthopedic sports medicine for their patient by incorporating an array of diagnostic and therapeutic services such as X-ray, MRI, occupational and physical therapy to the treatment plan as needed.
