Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Healthwatch Fall 2009

Introducing U18 Sport Medicine


Memorial Hospital Miramar, in affiliation with Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, has opened U18 Sports Medicine. Designed especially for young athletes, and treating disorders and injuries from diagnosis through rehabilitation, the program is the first of its kind in South Florida.

Our team includes board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons; certified orthopedic physical therapists with sports medicine experience; and a nurse practitioner, physician's assistants and athletic trainers to support care and help patients return to peak performance. Unlike facilities where physical therapy is offered in a group setting, U18 Sports Medicine provides one-on-one sessions lasting a full 45 minutes for better outcomes and personalized care.

Experience the exceptional patient- and family-centered care that helps keep young athletes in the game. For more information,
call (954) 538-5500, or visit U18SportsMedicine.com.

To find a Memorial physician who is committed to patient- and family-centered care, call Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Physician Referral Service toll-free at (866) JDCH-DOC. We're available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
