Sports Medicine

I'm very impressed with the entire staff for their commitment to the care of their patients.


From weekend warriors to competitive athletes, our physicians specialize in treating athletes and returning them to the game as quickly and as safely as possible.

Anyone can benefit from sports medicine services. Sports medicine can help anyone who is maintaining an active lifestyle, avoiding injury or looking to balance overall wellness.


Northwest Iowa Bone Joint and Sports Surgeons’ specialists in Iowa Great Lakes Corridor and surrounding communities provide surgical and nonsurgical treatment options with the athletes and active individuals they provide care to.  Many serve as team physicians for local area high schools, Buena Vista University and Iowa Lakes Community College.

Children ages 5 to 14 account for nearly 40% of all sports-related injuries treated in hospitals.
