Sports medicine

Over the last 30 years, the advent of orthopedic sports medicine as a recognized field in the pantheon of musculoskeletal injuries has led to the creation of a multibillion dollar a year industry. The depth of this industry is far and sweeping. Entire specialties have arisen in this field from chiropractic sports medicine, family practice sports medicine, the orthopedic sports medicine specialist both surgical and nonsurgical as well as an entire host of ancillary and supporting clinics, research foundations, and companies dedicated solely to perfecting both the injured and noninjured athlete.

Nonetheless experience matters. Fellowship training in orthopedic sports medicine typically provides the highest quality treatment available for athletes of all caliber, regardless of age.

We have provided quality care for over 25 years to injured athletes all over the Miami Valley region. Our practice has built a solid foundation of sports medicine fellowship training by staying current with the latest techniques both surgical and nonsurgical in the treatment of the injured athlete.

While surgery is always an option it should be the last option. Our years of training have shown that prevention of injury is the key to success. When an athlete does sustain injury it is our philosophy that there should be a team approach to ensure the best convalescence and to recommend surgery only as a last resort. While there are some athletic injuries where surgery is the only option, for the vast majority of athletes, this is not a reality. It is absolutely vital for the injured athlete to understand not just how and why he was injured but what can be done to prevent recurrence of this injury.

The field of orthopedic sports medicine is as exciting as it is diverse and if you are an injured athlete and require treatment or consultation or even a second opinion then at Dayton Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, we can help.

Happy Patients

“Listened & understood my needs before surgery. The surgery went very well, and was just as he explained. Post surgery recovery time was much less than expected. Absolutely no pain, very minimal discomfort, and was back doing my normal routine with only slight modification within 2 months. I am very, very happy with Dr. Paley & his staff.”

After another Doctor screwed my knee up and told me it was all in my head I went to Dr. Paley he has done two surgeries to correct the first one and is by far the best and most caring Doctor I have seen. His whole office staff are wonderful people that are always happy to be there and his Physicians Assistants actually know what they are doing. Great great great!
