Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is opening a new Sports Medicine Clinic for young athletes who participate in competitive and recreational programs.
The clinic provides specialized care for sports-related injuries ranging from concussion to sprains, strains and overuse.
Dr. Kody Moffatt, MD is well-known as a pediatrician with Children’s Physicians. Before becoming a doctor, he was a certified athletic trainer in professional hockey. He has multiple degrees and credentials in pediatrics, sports medicine and orthopaedics. He is eager to share his expertise with young athletes.
Dr. Moffatt anticipates most injuries he’ll see will not need surgery.
The Children’s Sports Medicine Clinic will provide diagnosis and treatment for a range of sports-related injuries. Concussion follow-up care will be a significant focus, particularly as more emphasis is placed on helping injured athletes transition back into the classroom, a process often referred to as “return to learn.”
