Providence Medical Associates Sports medicine involves non-operative orthopedic care for patients who experience sports and exercise-related injuries. We work in partnership with local orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, radiologists and athletic trainers. We work closely with our patients to listen and understand their needs and concerns. We keep abreast of current medical advances and take a personal active interest in sports, fitness and nutritional health. Drs. Georgio and Dr. Salah have completed extensive training and participate in research related to concussion management.
