SportCare - Access for Athletes

Our Services
 

Competitive athletes train hard for their sport. The last thing they plan on is an unexpected injury.

Our fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians and surgeons are the team physicians for UW Badger athletes so they understand the need for athletes to receive efficient and effective assessment and management of their injuries.

That's why UW Health Sports Medicine has introduced SportCare – a streamlined program to provide injured athletes with quick access to assessment and treatment.

How does SportCare work?

 

SportCare allows injured athletes to be seen by a UW Health Sports Medicine physician soon after the athlete sustains a sports injury.

  • Call the UW Health Sports Medicine Clinic at (608) 263-8850.
  • Indicate that a SportCare appointment is needed.
  • Have the patient bring any x-ray, MRI, CT studies or other pertinent reports to the SportCare appointment.

If there are special needs or questions, our reception staff will forward patients to UW Health Sports Medicine staff who will make sure that the athlete has the most appropriate care.

Who can make a referral to the SportCare program?

  • Physicians
  • Athletic trainers
  • Physical therapists
  • Urgent Care centers
  • Parents 
  • Coaches
  • Athletes

What injuries or conditions do we see?

 

Our sports medicine physicians and surgeons are available to see athletes with any injury or condition that affects sports performance and/or participation.

The SportCare Hotline number is (608) 263-8850.
