SUGAR LAND (September20,
Local student athletes in
Fort Bend County will be able to see a doctor after their Friday night football
game or Saturday soccer game, courtesy of the Sports
Medicine Outreach Program at Memorial Hermann
Sugar Land Hospital. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 23, two Saturday sports
injury clinics will take place on the campus of Memorial Hermann Sugar Land.
Patients can visit the orthopedic injury clinic or the head injury and
“For many of our young athletes
it’s difficult to get to the doctor during the week when they’re in school,”
says Rehal Bhojani, M.D., Medical Director of the Sports Medicine Outreach
Program at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land. “Our Saturday morning clinics will
allow athletes to receive timely, high quality care so when it’s time to go
back to school on Monday their treatment plan is already in place.”
The Saturday Sports Injury
Clinics will run from Sept. 23 through Nov. 18 from 8:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
Patients can simply walk-in to the clinics or schedule an appointment.
Both clinics will offer full
diagnostic and treatment services including X-rays, splints, supports, casting
and crutches. The clinics will be staffed by physicians who specialize in
orthopedic medicine, concussions and head injuries, and sports medicine.
Each clinic will have a
different focus based on the patient’s needs. The orthopedic injury clinic will
be held on the second floor of Medical Plaza 1 in Suite 200. For patients with
head injuries or possible concussions, they can visit the clinic located on the
first floor of Medical Plaza 1 in Suite 110.
The hospital campus is
located at 17500 W Grand Parkway S, Sugar Land, Texas 77479.
