Services and Amenities
New Expansive Therapy Gymnasium
The new gymnasium will include the most advanced therapy equipment (Cybex, Sports Art, Nautilus, Triton, and Game Ready equipment). Future plans will also include the Biodex 4 and Vestibular Unit for research and testing of patients.
Hydroworx® Rehabilitation Pool
This is a treadmill-in-a-pool, complete with underwater cameras that allow physicians to view their patients running gait and then assess therapies on the spot. This is typically used to treat any sports medicine-related injury, post operatively and non-operative. It will likewise utilize the benefits of aquatic therapy to speed recovery and return the athlete to full performance in a much faster time frame.
Coming in 2009 This MRI Suite will contain a 1.7 Tesla Unit that will be used to detect acute, subacute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries with high resolution. A skilled musculoskeletal radiologist will be on site to read these studies in real time and will be available for intra-articular gadolinium enhanced complex evaluations of specific joints such as the shoulder, hip, wrist, elbow and knee. In addition, state-of-the-art cartilage-specific T2 mapping will be available daily.
Coming in 2009 This is a state-of-the-art arthroscopic skills laboratory that will utilize cadaveric specimens to train local and national residents (orthopaedist in training), sports medicine fellows (board-eligible orthopaedist) and board-certified orthopaedists on the latest in sports medicine operative techniques and medical equipment. In addition, this facility will be used to perform biomechanical Instron® testing of various orthopaedic implants and operative techniques.
Human Performance Lab
Coming in 2009 This lab will conduct clinical studies that analyze sports biomechanics, perform gait and running assessments, analyze pitching and throwing mechanics, and assess overall pre- and post-operative joint kinetics/kinematics and clinical outcomes. Motion and force assessments can be performed on specific joints (shoulder, below and knee) while changing internal and external forces, as demonstrated by low handicap golfers aiming to improve their technique. This information will create an extensive database through which rehabilitative protocols can be designed. This same biomechanical data base can be used to evaluate the effects of orthopaedic devices and procedures.
