Sports Medicine

The Duke Sports Medicine Center has a 70-year history of being a national leader in the treatment of professional athletes, non-professional athletes, and recreational athletes. Under the leadership of Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, the Duke Sports Medicine Center will continue to provide the highest standard of health care as we pursue our goal of becoming the #1 sports medicine program in the country.
The Duke Sports Medicine Center, a section within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, is comprised of four world-class programs: The Duke Sports Medicine Clinic, Duke Sports Medicine Physical Therapy, the Michael Krzyzewski Human Performance Lab (K-Lab) and the Duke Sports Performance Program. Each program brings an important element to the care of our patients. The DSMC Clinic and Physical Therapy offer a coordinated program geared toward diagnosis, evaluation and operative/non-operative treatment, while the K-Lab and the Duke Sports Performance Program provide valuable information on injury prevention and performance enhancement for athletes and physically active individuals. "This extraordinary combination of programs allows the DSMC to utilize a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment and education of our patients," says James A. Nunley, MD, Chair, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Duke's Sports Medicine physicians are the 'team behind the team.'
Duke Sports Medicine physicians strive to provide the highest level of patient care reflective of the sophisticated techniques and leading-edge research offered at Duke. "Our multidisciplinary approach, which links the expertise of specialists in orthopaedic surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, radiology, physical therapy, and orthopaedic nursing insures that each patient receives the most appropriate and responsive treatment," says Claude T. Moorman, III, MD, Duke Sports Medicine Director.
