Get Back in the Game

Athletes know it takes total dedication to stay on top. That’s what the sports medicine specialists at The Sports Medicine Center at FWO bring to their jobs. Every day. Every case. Every time.

Sports injuries may be common – but we never treat them that way. After all, your injury is unique to you. So, The Sports Medicine Center at FWO treats every injury – from sprains and strains to tears and fractures – on an individualized basis. First we treat your injury or condition. Then we continue to work with you through recovery and rehabilitation. And, we go the extra mile with conditioning and training to help prevent repeat injuries.

“In everything we do, we’re considering our athlete’s safety.”

FWO Sports Center physicians Dr. Greg Sassmannshausen and Dr. Snyder are the region’s only orthopedic surgeons trained in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of concussion injuries. They explain,

“With the imPACT program, we’re providing more resources to measure injury and keep kids safer.” More info
