"Bone and joint health has always been important, but in the last couple years in particular there's been a real issue with more and more kids getting serious sports injuries. Studies have shown it, and it's something we come face to face with--it's clear we as health professionals need to really step up and help share our knowledge to prevent these injuries, and make sure the injuries that do occur are treated properly to minimize risk of long term consequences," said James F. Cozzarelli, MD, FAAOS, an orthopedic surgeon at AOSMI.

The AOSMI team includes wellness experts, surgeons, sports medicine experts, physical therapists, nutritionists, and other specialists to provide comprehensive care. Whether it's preventative medicine, corrective treatment for movement and posture problems, diagnosis and treatment of injuries, or rehabilitative care, the AOSMI team has it covered. The colocation of the AOSMI professionals allows for a more convenient and familiar environment for patients--important, the group believes, for families.

"Visits to the doctor can be frightening and confusing for kids. Having one place to go to--especially if there's an issue that needs long-term care--helps. We try to make our patients feel at home here," said Paul Joseph Chubb, DO, an orthopedic surgeon and hand specialist at AOSMI.
