(415) 353-2808

The UCSF Women's Sports Medicine Center is the first such clinic in the Bay Area to focus exclusively on female athletes. We provide comprehensive orthopedic care to women and girls of all ages and abilities for a wide range of sports-related issues and injuries. Our goal is to help every patient achieve the level of physical activity and performance she seeks. The female doctors making up our team are all athletes themselves as well as national and international leaders in the field of sports medicine.

In addition to providing surgical and nonsurgical orthopedic care, we offer guidance on injury prevention and safe returns to play. Patients can get an analysis of their running or other sports performance. Our patients also have access to experts in sports nutrition, sports psychology, athletic training and physical therapy, as well as the specialists of the UCSF Human Performance Center and the Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes.
