Sports Medicine at Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute

Sports Medicine 

Sports Medicine deals with injuries or illnesses resulting from participation in sports and recreational activities. Sports Medicine focuses on preventing injury as well as delaying surgery through various injury management and therapeutic techniques.The American College of Sports Medicine promotes and integrates scientific research, education and practical applications of sports medicine and exercise science to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health and quality of life.

Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute in Fort Lauderdale, FL has a Fellowship trained Sports Medicine specialist -- Fernando Manalac, MD, MMM -- on staff for diagnosis and conservative management of musculoskeletal injuries.

In addition, when conservative management is not enough, Holy Cross has an Orthopedic Surgeon on staff who is Fellowship trained in minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery for sports injuries.  Ross Wodicka, MD, specializes in complex shoulder, knee and hip surgery for athletes of all levels.

In addition, our orthopedic surgeons in Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point and Boca Raton also offer many minimally invasive, robotic and traditional surgical treatments for these injuries. Musculoskeletal injury refers to damage of muscular or skeletal systems, which is usually due to a strenuous activity. The injury of these tissues may be sudden or chronic. It may involve tendons, ligaments, cartilage or bone. In some cases, nerve damage is also involved.
