BACKGROUND-   Dr. Smith is a Sports Medicine Specialist.  He is board certified and fellowship trained.  He has been practicing on the Main Line since 2007 and in the Philadelphia area since 1999. In July 2012, he opened his own practice in an office he shares with his wife, an Internist, on the grounds at  Lankenau Hospital.  He also sees patients in Chester Springs every other Wednesday.  He rents space  in Chester Springs (Village of Eagle) inside the Kinetic Physical Therapy office.  It is on Pottstown Pike/Rte 100 just North of the Downingtown exit of the PA Turnpike

  

What does Dr. Smith treat?

the short answer: a lot

Sprains, strains, joint injuries, muscle tears, contusions, overuse injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, stress fractures (and other fractures not requiring surgery), arthritis (osteoarthritis or "wear and tear" arthritis), and Sports Related Concussion.  

He also treats chronic musculoskeletal injuries that are not healing with typical treatments by offering treatment options sometimes overlooked such as prolotherapy or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy.  He also frequently sees patients for second opinions or will take patients referred to him by other providers such as physical therapists, athletic trainers, and chiropractors.  

 

Who does Dr. Smith treat?

Most people:

Young kids with injuries from sports, falls, or growing pains

Athletes of all ages: from grade school to high school, college and beyond.  Also scholarship and pro athletes or "Weekend Warriors" well into adulthood, and people that participate in every type of sport or exercise

Just athletes?  No. Whether you like to run 5-95 miles per week, or you only run when chased, Dr. Smith can help you.  If you can bench press a sofa, or rarely leave your sofa, and you have an injury or something that hurts, chances are Dr. Smith can help.

What doesn't Dr. Smith do?

1. Surgery  

Dr. Smith specializes in Non-operative Sports Medicine.  He will try and treat appropriate conditions without surgery but some injuries either require surgery or may do better with surgery.  He does have relationships with many top orthopedic surgeons in the area so he can help get you to the right doctor if surgery is the best option.  

2. Physical Therapy

Dr. Smith often utilizes physical therapy to help his patients recover, but he does not provide rehab in his office.  He will often demonstrate and instruct in some exercises to help your recovery that you can do on your own.  His experience and familiarity with many of the area's best physical therapists can help guide you to the best possible location for treatment for your specific issue.

3. Complex Rheumatologic conditions

If you have rheumatoid arthritis (not osteoarthritis or "wear and tear" arthritis), Polymyalgia Rheumatica,fibromyalgia, or other such systemic conditions, then you are better off with a Rheumatologist and not Dr. Smith.  He can refer you to other specialists if needed to treat any conditions he does not manage.
