Our team includes Dr. Daniel Murphy (a board-certified orthopaedic sports medicine surgeon and team physician for the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Dr. Arnold Ramirez (a board-certified sports medicine physician and former head team physician for the Buccaneers).

Common Sports Injuries

Studies suggest that sprains and muscle strains are the most common types of sports injuries overall. Some other examples of common sports injuries include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Labral tears
  • Meniscus tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tendonitis

The sports medicine doctors at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group have experience treating all of these sports injuries (as well as many others). We generally recommend that patients first try to relieve their symptoms using conservative techniques—possibly including corticosteroid injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, stem cell therapy, ultrasound therapy, or viscosupplementation—but if those methods fail to provide relief, we can also perform surgery.
