Preventing and Treating Injuries for Active Females of All Ages

The Women's Sports Medicine Center is the first of its kind in Suffolk County.

The Women's Sports Medicine Center focuses on treating and preventing sports-, performance- and exercise-related injuries among girls and women through a multidisciplinary approach utilizing the expertise of our mostly female staff of physicians, many of whom were athletes themselves.

The center, directed by Diana Patterson, MD, focuses on conditions and injuries more common to girls and women, such as stress fractures, knee ligament tears (ACL and PCL), rotator cuff tears and hammertoe complications. The expert team of orthopaedists performs a variety of procedures to address these ailments, including repair and reconstructive surgery for ligament, meniscus, bunions and ACL injuries, as well as hammertoe correction, among others, while also integrating the care of Stony Brook Medicine specialists in the fields of nutrition, psychology, and obstetrics and gynecology, to name a few, to help solve your orthopaedic issue.
