Here at Mountainstate Orthopedic Associates, we have Orthopedic Surgeons that treat a wide array of sports injuries.  We have specific fellowship training in shoulder and knee injuries.  Many of us cover sports teams here in Morgantown, both college (West Virginia University - WVU) and high school (Morgantown High School and Clay Batelle High School).  However, we treat all levels of injuries caused by sport participation at all ages.  Many can be treated without surgery and are amenable to physical therapy and different medicines, both orally and injectable.

If you have had an injury, we would be happy to help you figure out the problem and get you back participating as quickly as the injury and your body permit.
