ORTHOMEMPHIS, a division of MSK Group, P.C., kicks off their Friday Night Football Clinic this Friday, August 17 from 9 pm – 11 pm. This clinic is the only one of its kind and the destination for football players across the Midsouth. Our Fellowship Trained Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Surgeons began this clinic to provide injured athletes with the highest quality orthopaedic care on game night. The clinic will be open during football season every Friday Night ending on November 9. The clinic allows athletes to begin their road to recovery and hopefully return to their sport before the end of the season.
The Sports Medicine Outreach Program at ORTHOMEMPHIS provides hands-on assistance to lessen the possibility of athletic trauma by providing certified athletic trainers (ATCs) and/or team physicians to our partners. Our partners include Christian Brothers High School (CBHS), Evangelical Christian School (ECS), St. George’s Independent School (SGIS), St. Agnes Academy (SAA), St. Dominic School (SDS), White Station High School, Collierville High School, Memphis Kickball League (MKL), Dynasty Women’s Football Team, and Greater Memphis Soccer Association (GMSA). These partnerships will allow athletes to optimize their sports performance through injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.
During Football Season, you will find ORTHOMEMPHIS Drs. Krahn, Weiss, Deneka, Giel, and Dowling along with ORTHOMEMPHIS certified athletic trainers, Marty Scruggs, David Dabbs, Daniel Baker, Hannah Koraly, and John Michael Leppert on the sidelines taking care of players."We believe that fielding a team of sports medicine fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons and full time certified athletic trainers is the best approach to caring for athletes" said Randy Holcomb, MD, president and managing partner of ORTHOMEMPHIS.
