Women's Sports
Medicine Program

Meet the Team

Just like any sport, we know that one person can’t play all the positions. That’s why the Women’s Sports Medicine program at Emory Healthcare takes a team approach to your care. We call in experts for each “position” – from orthopedic specialists that diagnose and treat injuries, physical therapists to help you regain strength, dietitians to help you build healthy eating habits and many others. We’re here, working together, to help you get strong and reduce your risk of future injuries.

To request an appointment, call 404-7STRONG (404-778-7664).
