Sports medicine is an area of medical practice concerned with the treatment of injuries resulting from athletic activities. Sports Medicine bridges the gap between science and practice in the promotion of exercise and health, and in the scientific assessment, study and understanding of sports performance. Regular features include: sports injury prevention and treatment; exercise for health and recommendations for training and nutrition.
For more than 75 years, Broward Health has provided quality healthcare to the people we serve in the South Florida community. Today more than ever, that remains the cornerstone of our commitment and our mission as we evolve and grow. As the leading provider of orthopedic and sports medicine services in Broward County we have partnered with the School Board of Broward County to provide certified athletic trainers in twenty of the district’s public schools. Broward Health’s Athletic Training Program has been a major component of Sports Medicine for over 25 years. The program includes twenty-five licensed and an nationally certified athletic trainers.
The program was created by Broward Health orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dan Kanell. This outreach program helped to place certified athletic trainers in local high schools to prevent injuries to student athletes and to provide care for them as well.
Through education, supervision and treatment, our athletic trainers currently care for more than 14,500 local high school athletes. Our sports medicine team was instrumental in assisting the School Board in developing their concussion management program. Together with our community partners, Broward Health is committed to safe participation in school and youth sports activities.
Broward Health Weston is home to the first Siemens Definition AS+ 128 Multi-Slice CT Scanner in Broward County. It's the world's first CT Scanner to adapt to virtually every patient and provides imaging for most types of diagnostic exams, including vessel imaging, cardiac tests and cancer staging. It's exceptionally fast – even faster than the human heart – and produces spectacular images, plus in many cases it eliminates the need for follow-up tests.
